Raffle and reception support award effort for all American City

POCOMOKE CITY -- Having been named one of the 30 finalists in the All-America Cities competition, Pocomoke City will send a group of leaders and citizens to Tampa, Fla. in June to compete for one of the winning slots.

To finance the trip, the group is planning a fundraising raffle. A 46-inch flat-screen television will be given away at the Great Pocomoke Fair on Aug. 22. Tickets for a chance to win the set are $10 each or three for $20 and are available at Pocomoke's City Hall or the Pocomoke Chamber of Commerce.
A reception will be held on Friday, May 29, at the Mar-Va Theater from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. There will be hors d'oeuvres, musical entertainment and a cash bar. Donations toward the project will be welcome.
Pocomoke City was selected as a finalist from among the 5,000 applicants for progress in the following areas: construction of the new fire house, improvements to the MarVa Theater, improvements to the Sturgis One Room School Museum, and the youth projects sponsored by the Pocomoke City Police Department.
