We won the lottery! The Somerset County Freeholders holds an annual lottery every spring, awarding 40 non-profit organizations the opportunity to use the “Community Box” (Suite 306) at TD Bank’s Somerset Patriot ballpark. We nominated our lodge and won a spot!

“Giving away tickets for the 30-seat community box is just one way that the county can show its appreciation for all of the work and dedication that nonprofits and community organizations provide,” said Freeholder Director Levine. “This tradition shows how thankful we are for the amazing effort that these organizations give to improve the lives of Somerset County residents.”

“We are grateful for the work that our community-based organizations commit to every year. Many of the members are volunteers that dedicate their time and service without compensation,” he said. “Free tickets and box seats are just one small way for the Board of Chosen Freeholders to show our appreciation for the dedication and hard work of these organizations.”

After some discussion with ER Danny Larsen, it has been decided that, in the spirit of the Somerset County Freeholders tradition, the 30 seats will be parceled out to those lodge members that “dedicate their time and service” in this order: Officers, Committee Chairs and Dedicated Volunteers. These members are listed in the box inset in this article – any that can’t attend due to a conflict may nominate another member to replace them (as Danny Larsen, ER has done).

For those who have “won” a ticket – you’ll be able to find your ticket at the lodge as of Wednesday, June 12th – ask the bartender on duty. Any tickets unclaimed by Tuesday the 18th will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis to other Lodge 885 members. Please contact Mike Ryder if you’re on the list, can’t make it and want to nominate a replacement – [email protected] or 908-605-0305.
