Local fire departments? I know I've been to one up in Cresson that one includes a meal. Another one that is down in Mcconellstown that is the same way. Mill Creek (other side of Huntington ) has another big one.

There is another one at the Jaffa Shrine, plus a couple others that are around. Usually I hear of them from word of mouth or advertising in a local gun shop.

^^^^^ x2 for fire departments. I'm a member in Cresson FD, we have gun raffles in spring and fall. Most of the area fire departments have them, some larger than others. Check websites, if the dept doesn't have a website or isn't updated frequently, then just give them a call and ask.

Don't have to be present to win, and I'd be more than happy to hold onto anything you won until you could get it. I'll text you whenever I get some tickets and we'll figure something out.
