Carnival's big winners

In terms of fun, everyone walked away from the Big Glen Burnie Carnival a winner. But some visitors took home a little more than a stuffed bear or a box of potato chips.

Pat Scheleur of Arnold, was the winner of the Glen Burnie Improvement Association's annual car raffle. Pat and her husband each purchased one ticket on their visit to the carnival. The winning ticket was drawn at the conclusion of the carnival at midnight Saturday and Pat Scheleur got the keys to the 1996 Plymouth Neon on Monday.

The association raffled off another mode of transportation Saturday night. Bicycles were won by these ticket holders: Matthew Eierman, Allan Haley, James Matusky, Janet Petruccy, Teresa Rogers, Al Scarfa, Steve Schireman and Nick Willis.

The Glen Burnie Volunteer Fire Company's annual raffle had three winners, all from Glen Burnie.
