Field Notes offers a taste of the meat raffle

The Daily Circuit
Eagles Club meat raffles generally draw a crowd in Litchfield. Tickets cost $1 and participants can win a package of meat from the local grocery store. When the meat is gone, there are often one or two "money rounds" in which the winner receives $15. The club members use the proceeds to support their charitable work around town, like building a new playground or sponsoring a youth sports team.
