BOTKINS — The Botkins community is preparing for the 2023 Botkins Carousel which will be held June 9, 10 and 11, and is looking for donations for the annual raffle. This is the 59th carousel.
Last year 131 prizes, totaling over $5,000, were donated to the local organizations. There were gift baskets, certificates, gifts and cash prizes ranging from $15 to $500.
The raffle committee is looking for 2023 donations from businesses, organizations or individuals. Letters soliciting donations were sent to previous donors earlier. Anyone interested in making a donation should contact Carly Greve at 937-538-6796 by March 22nd.
