A whopping $10,765 was raised during a recent meat draw to benefit the Agassiz-Harrison Museum.

The proceeds of the draw for three prizes – a half-side of beef as the grand prize and a quarter side of beef each for second and third prize – will go to help restore the caboose in front of the museum.

The Agassiz-Harrison Historical Society would like to thank everyone who bought tickets for the draw and thank the Schwichtenberg family for providing the meat.

Jim Vermeer won first prize, Agassiz Fire Chief Gerald Basten took second prize and Shannon van Biert took home third prize.
