LOCK HAVEN — Janet Brinker, of Mill Hall, is the winner of $1,000 worth of gift certificates from local businesses in The Express’s 2018 Great Holiday Giveaway.

“I never thought I’d win,” she said Thursday when she stopped in The Express to pick up the gift cards.

“It was just a shock.”

Brinker said she’ll use every single gift card and is excited for the grocery gift cards from Lingle’s Neighborhood Market and Save a Lot.

They’re helpful during the holiday season, she said.

“They won’t go to waste,” she added.

Businesses that participated in this year’s giveaway were: It Is What It Is; Bastress Mountain Winery; Lingle’s Neighborhood Market; Save a Lot; Mill Hall Pharmacy; Millheim Small Engine; Kauffman’s Store; Sunoco Lock Haven; The Cottage Restaurant, and Murray Motors.

Brinker would like to thank all the local businesses who participated.
