Today there was a family fair at the park next door. We had gotten an postcard from our alderman,Daniel Solis, inviting us to this event. So we went. When we got there, I signed up for a free raffle. They were raffling off four bikes and a pair of roundtrip airplane tickets. Just as I finished entering, they raffled of a bike. My number was #239 and the number they picked was #240. Bummer! So they announced that at 1:30 they were going to raffle off the rest of the prizes. So we went home since it was getting cold. I told Eric I wanted to come back to check out the drawing ‘cuz you just never know.
So I went back. They raffled off the prizes. I won the tickets!!! They are two roundtrip tickets within the continental US from Southwest Airlines. Now I have to call the alderman’s office on Monday to see how I pick the tickets/vouchers. I am so happy! I have never won anything like this. Now we need to figure out were we want to go!
