A John Deere D120 mower purchased as a giveaway at the Freistatt Lions' Ernte Fest was claimed last week by Phillip Shane, of Springfield.

"I was excited to win," Shane said. "My ticket was just a donation. This is definitely a surprise."

Shane said he expects his 74-year-old father, whose own mower needed jump starting, will be using the prize.

Larson Farm and Lawn in Freistatt sold the mower at a discount to the Lions, the first time Larson has participated in such a fundraiser.

Proceeds for the drawing will help support the Lions' efforts to send delegates to Boys and Girls State, the annual model government programs for incoming high school seniors. S
