Monto’s new­est po­lice of­fi­cer wins a TV

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THERE are many ways of wel­com­ing a new­comer to town, but not all of them in­volve a 49 inch LED TV.

Monto Se­nior Con­sta­ble Matt Stark has been in town for barely a month and man­aged to win IGA’s lat­est shop­ping pro­mo­tion.

“It’s like a bribe, like a pay­off,” Const Stark said, jok­ingly.

Dur­ing June, for ev­ery­one who spent $50 or more, a ticket to go in the run­ning would come along with their re­ceipt.

Monto IGA man­ager Sharon Han­ley chose the TV to be the prize.

“They gave us so much money to have a promo for this month, I chose a TV be­cause ev­ery­one wants a TV, you don’t re­ally want a wash­ing ma­chine,” Mrs Han­ley said.

Const Stark has been steadily in­te­grat­ing into the town with his wife and three kids, and is poised to start play­ing at the Monto Golf Club soon.

“I’ll be there do­nat­ing my money on a Thurs­day,” Const Stark said.
