Two Will Win $500 in Ol’ Mill Bucks in Next Christmas Cash Drawing


Winners of the first and second Christmas Cash promotion drawings were announced Saturday, December 7. Winning in the drawing postponed from November 30 were Barbara Smith of Big Stone City and Marty Buttke of Milbank. They were present in Berens Warehouse Groceries and Runnings, respectively, when their names were announced. Each won $500 in Ol’ Mill Bucks. 
From the tickets entered for the December 7 drawing, Marlys Justice of Milbank and Kathy Bethke of Big Stone City each won $500 in Ol’ Mill Bucks. They were present at Berens Warehouse Groceries and Lewis Family Drug, respectively. 
Two winners will be announced in the third chamber-sponsored drawing on Saturday, December 14, and the final drawing will be December 21. 
“This was a big week for us,” commented Laurie Folk, director of the Milbank Area Chamber of Commerce. “When the weather forced us to postpone the first drawing, we knew it would be exciting to have four winners this week.” 
In addition to the Christmas Cash drawings, the chamber also co-sponsored a free movie for kids Saturday afternoon. Folk reported that it was well-attended with nearly 150 people taking in the showing of The Grinch.
“The parade of lights is probably my favorite of the Christmas events,” Folk comments. The parade was also postponed from December 7, and unfortunately, the change in scheduling led to fewer entries. The event still drew a crowd, and those who turned out Saturday evening were treated to the Christmas lights and music display on more than a dozen entries. 
Folk reminds local residents to nominate their neighbors who have done impressive outdoor decorating for the holidays for their chance to win $50 on Ol’ Mill Bucks in the annual lighting contest. The contest is open to city or rural residents. To enter yourself or your neighbor, email Folk at or call 605-432-6656.
