“I’ve been entering the Gazette’s contests for years,” said Carmella Muscarella, “but I never thought I’d win…until today!”
Carmella found all 21 of the roses scattered throughout the pages of the Jamestown Gazette’s May 4th Mothers Day issue. “My first count was 19. Then I counted again and found 20, but I just didn’t feel right about it,” Carmella recalled when she visited the Gazette office to claim her prize. “I took a copy home from Tim Hortons, looked through it one more time and found the last little black and white one in the corner of the Roberts Nursery ad.”
Carmella’s prize was a gift basket of fine goods and gift certificates valued at $450, all contributed especially for the event by Jamestown Gazette’s advertisers.
A Jamestown native, Carmella meets with friends at Tim Hortons every afternoon, sometimes joined by her husband Sam. She said the Jamestown Gazette is the centerpiece of conversations around the table and their great guide for planning their week’s activities. “I never go home on Monday without my Gazette,” Carmella said.
Carmella and Sam Muscarella have been married for 63 years and raised their three children, Samuel, Diana and Steven in Jamestown. She is a retired employee, most recently of Key Bank.
Carmella’s prize winning advice: “Enter every contest in the Gazette. You never know, you just might win.”
