FREEPORT (WIFR) – A Lena woman is the talk of the town tonight.
Beverely Lindenman is the proud new owner of a Belvidere-made 2014 Jeep Patriot. Lindeman entered a sweepstakes last month at the Menards in Freeport and much to her surprise was selected as the grand prize winner. She tells us at first she thought it was a scam.
“Jessie from up in Eau Claire called me and it’s like I didn’t really know if I should believe her, so I was very skeptical. Then Ryan from Freeport called me about an hour later. Still didn’t really believe him. So couple weeks later on a Friday I stopped in to talk to him again and I took m envelope along and I showed him and said ‘Does this name ring a bell?’ and he said, ‘The car winner!’ and I said, ‘Now I believe it.’”, Lindenman said.
