Local lady wins Fas Gas travel brochures

Big win for local

When Melanie Crehan received the phone call that she had won $4,000 worth of travel brochures through a Fas Gas litre log contest, she didn’t believe it.

“Is this some kind of joke?” she questioned.

Crehan, who owns Serenity Pet Shelter, originally thought the call was concerning an animal in distress.

But it turned out it was not about an animal and it was not a joke and Crehan was, indeed, the winner of the contest.

“I was pleased and completely shocked,” she said. “It’s a pretty huge thing.”

Crehan, who lives in Rimbey, said she plans to take a trip to Vancouver Island and is also looking at traveling to foreign shores at a later date, but hasn’t firmed up those plans as of yet.

Meanwhile, she is grateful for the win.

“I don’t mean to be greedy, but maybe I should get a lottery ticket now,” she said.

Rob Rondeel, who owns Fas Gas in Rimbey said this is the first time a local winner who bought gas in town has been selected.
