Tickets may be purchased for $5 at the Goose and Bayview Farmers Market on May 25 through June 1 and at The HUB, located in the basement of Langley First United Methodist Church. A drawing will be held at 4 p.m. Wednesday, June 5.

Items include: Four-wheel dump garden cart, bird feeders, bird seed, 50-foot garden and 30-foot compact hoses, three-piece hose accessory package, ornamental yard art, solar-powered garden lights, vegetable and flower seeds, four plants, two pairs of garden gloves, garden sprayer, watering can, $50 gift certificate to Double R Rentals, deck and patio cleaner, 12 garden tools, garden tool bag and shop towels and weed inhibiting ground cloth.
