Activity Haven draw sends winner to Puerto Plata
Top prize is a trip for two to Dominican Republic resort
And we have a winner! Congratulations to Paulette Nichols, the lucky winner of Activity Haven’s draw for an all-expense-paid trip for two to a spa resort in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.
The winning entry was drawn at a recent bingo night by Teresa Kaszuba of Global Peterborough’s The Morning Show.
The official launch for Activity Haven’s new book, Tell Me A Story, a compilation of stories by members, takes place Wednesday at 11:45 a.m.
“I have heard so many amazing, interesting, comical, and sad stories from our members over time that I decided it was time to memorialize some of them,” said Thom Whitby, marketing and special events co-ordinator for Activity Haven.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase, and many of the contributing writers will be in attendance.
“This is a first for Activity Haven, and we are very excited to share our stories with the world,” said Whitby.
