Congratulations to Gordon and Donna Locke on winning a new 2011 Harley Davidson Cool Blue Pearl Fat-Boy motorcycle. Their winning ticket was pulled during a fire company benefit drawing last week, and they received their call on Tuesday. Their boys are all calling dibs on the cycle, while Gordon is gearing up for a ride. Donna is hoping he practices a bit before she takes her ride. It’s nice to hear someone local was a lucky winner in a drawing.
