Win a Trip on the Paul R. Tregurtha


The drawing for Detroit Lodge No. 7's recent raffle, a trip for 6 persons aboard the M/V Paul R. Tregurtha, was held on Saturday, February 20, during our 119th Annual Dinner Dance. 
ISMA Grand President Captain Edward Morris reached into the tumbler and selected ticket No. 1222, belonging to Mr. Chuck Neal of Warren, Michigan.   Mr. Neal was immediately notified by telephone and was happy to learn that he and 5 friends will be making a trip aboard the largest vessel on the Great Lakes this coming summer. 
The membership of Detroit Lodge No. 7 wishes to thank everyone who supported us with this fundraiser.
