OSAGE CITY—Another winner in the Christmas on Us promotion
stepped forward to claim $50 in scrip money, but five $50
instant prizes remain to be won, before the final drawings
Dec. 17 at Osage City High School auditorium.
Janet Donnelly, Overbrook, was the only ticket holder to claim
a prize last week, although there were three ticket numbers
hidden within last week’s advertisements. Donnelly’s
ticket was pulled from those collected at Swisher Automotive,
Overbrook, and the number was hidden in the Lamont Hill Restaurant
advertisement. Donnelly said she wasn’t sure yet where
she would use the $50.
One of last week’s unclaimed numbers was located in
an ad for Four Corners Steakhouse, Scranton, and was drawn
from tickets at Osage Building Materials, Osage City. The
other unclaimed number was on a ticket distributed by Carbondale
Tire and Auto, and hidden in the ad for Furniture Loft, Osage
Five $50 instant prizes remain up for grabs as of the third
week of The Herald-Chronicle’s Christmas on Us promotion,
four numbers are hidden in week’s ads.
The countdown is under way for the grand prize drawing for
two $1,000 prizes, and two $250 prizes, to begin at 9 a.m.
Saturday, Dec. 17, at Osage City High School auditorium. Everyone
is invited before the drawing to enjoy donuts and coffee,
served in the school cafeteria, beginning at 8:15 a.m. The
Santa Fe Trail Choraliers will add to the holiday entertainment.
A new twist to this year’s grand prize drawing is the
addition of door prizes “with a twist,” although
the newspaper staff is keeping details under wraps.

Through the Christmas on Us giveaway, Osage County merchants
are making sure that shopping at home pays. For every $10
spent at participating merchants, shoppers get a ticket. Those
who don’t buy, or who are just looking, can get a free
ticket each week by stopping by The Herald-Chronicle’s
office. No purchase is necessary to win.
You must be present at the grand prize drawing to win, and
the scrip money is only good at participating merchants. It
is simple to win but tough to decide where to spend the winnings
with the 37 merchants participating in the countywide contest.
