Appleton City Co-Workers Are May Lottery Team of the Month
Congratulations to the "Hospital Hopefuls" of Appleton City! The group was recognized as the Lottery Team of the Month for May as part of the Missouri Lottery’s 2008 Lottery Captains promotion. The promotion awards a Lottery players group with prizes and a feature at Molottery.com each month during the calendar year.
The "Hospital Hopefuls" are a group of 25 co-workers from Ellett Memorial Hospital in Appleton City who have played Powerball together for two years. The members are: Martha Cook (team captain), Janet Blanchard, Doris Campbell, Carolyn Combs, Debbie Dines, Jessica Dines, Julie Grubb, Penny Knight, Sarah Matrynowski, Kathy and Tim Miller, Tera Minks, Ronnie Parks, Debbie Ray, Kim Raybourn, Bryan Wade and Jean Walker, all of Appleton City; Nancy Gardner, Paul Hendricks, Julie Tootle and Jim Wirkkula; all of Clinton; Larry Osborn, El Dorado Springs; JoAn Lawson, Montrose; Cheryl Bridgewater, Osceola; and Debbie Weno, Rockville.
The group plays Powerball each drawing. Each member contributes $4 every two weeks on their payday. They use Quick Pick to let the computer select their numbers. So far, the team has won smaller prizes, and they put those prizes toward the next drawing.
The team keeps playing each week with the "hope that one day it will be (their) turn," Cook said.
