Lacombe resident $100,000 winner

A trip to the Bentley farmers market paid off for Lacombe man

A Lacombe resident ended up $100,000 richer when he decided to attend a recent farmers market in Bentley.

“I was in Bentley for the farmer’s market,” Lemuel Harding said. “I play the lottery every week, but I was still really surprised when I checked it and saw that I won!”

He purchased his LOTTO 6/49 and EXTRA ticket at the Bentley IDA and won $100,000 on the Aug. 20 EXTRA draw.

Harding hasn’t decided exactly what he will do with his winnings, but plans to share some of it with his family.

“With 10 grandkids, sharing the money might not go too far,” he said. “But any little bit helps.”
