Boating season has arrived and the Perry Optimist Club is offering residents a chance to win a new 16-foot Alumacraft boat, motor and trailer valued at $10,600. Tickets are just $5 each and available at Ragans Ace Hardware, Wilson’s Bait & Tackle, Sea Hag Marina, Keaton Beach Marina and Econfina River Resort. The drawing will be held this Saturday during the club’s 22nd annual Saltwater Fishing Tournament. Tickets for the tournament are also still available, at $50 each. All proceeds benefit programs serving local youth. Shown above with the boat that will be given away Saturday are Optimist members (l to r) Keith Ragans, Feebee Houck and President Mike Deming.
