Hamilton couple wins big in annual Winona Peach Festival prize draw

News Sep 16, 2019 by Mike Pearson Stoney Creek News

Rejean Comeau and Judy Townsend were on their way to their cottage in Barry’s Bay Aug. 26 when Comeau received a phone call from an unfamiliar number.

Comeau thought it might be a telemarketer but answered it anyway. Today, he’s happy he did.

As it turned out, it was Linda Shuker, president of the Winona Peach Festival, calling to inform him he was the grand prize winner of a 2019 Dodge Caravan from DeWildt Chrysler, as well as a one-year Ezee Clean Car Wash gift card.

Suddenly, a morning stuck in gridlock was looking a whole lot better.

“She said, ‘You’re the lucky winner,’ so that cheered me up,” Comeau recalled.

Comeau and Townsend, who have been together for about three years, enjoy attending the Winona Peach Festival each year. The east Hamilton couple especially love the food court, most notably the peach sundaes.

Comeau makes a point of buying raffle tickets to support community causes, like festivals and minor sports teams. So once again, he spent $5 on two peach festival raffle tickets and hoped for the best. Comeau said he's never won a major prize, until now.

“That’s the biggest prize I’ve ever won,” he noted.

Comeau and Townsend, both retired, give back to their community as volunteer drivers for the Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton.

The couple dropped by DeWildt Chrysler on Sept. 16 to pick up their grand prize.
