In And Around Hannibal, by Rita Hooper

The Hannibal Sports Boosters is conducting a lottery ticket drawing to raise funds to support the Hannibal athletics program.

The group anticipates selling 1,000 tickets. Each ticket sold will then be eligible to win $50 a day for the month of May using the New York State daily lottery number drawn each evening.

An individual who purchases a $5 ticket will have 31 chances of winning during the month of May.

Their will be four bonus days — Wednesdays during May. The winning ticket on those days will receive an additional bonus of $50.

Only those over 18 are permitted to sell the tickets. Tickets will be sold at the IGA/Village Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 19. For more information or to purchase tickets, call Mark Lafurney at 374-8806 or email:
