At 8PM the winning raffle ticket for the 2004 Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle was drawn before a crowd of over 20 people. The winner who asked not to be named on the website is a firefighter from Ringoes New Jersey. Word has it that he has already chalked up over 100 miles on the Custom Sportster and is looking forward to riding as much as possible before the cold weather comes. He also generously donated the trailer that he had won in the raffle back to Station 27 saying that he felt the firehouse could use the trailer more than he could. We congratulate the winner and would like to thank everyone who purchased a ticket to help support the fire department. After the cost of the motorcycle and associated expenses we raised over 8000 to help fund our 75th anniversary banquet that is being held on October 15th.
