Howard County - Howard County’s Christmas Gift Giveaway winners from Nov. 21-Dec. 22 have been listed.
The grand prize winner of the gift drawing was Kris Moen of Cresco, who won $1,000 in gift certificates from participating businesses.
Moen, who works at Rockwell-Collins, was surprised to get the phone call informing her of her good fortune. “[My coworker] Betty Reicks had given us some seasoned oyster crackers and a lottery ticket. I scratched and didn’t win. I joked that I hadn’t won the $1,000! When I got home there was a phone call for me! Wow! A shopping spree. I’m proud to spend it in Cresco.”
Second prize of $500 went to Phil Ollendieck, also of Cresco.
“I was pretty surprised to hear that I won second prize,” Ollendieck said. “Now I can finish doing my Christmas shopping.”
