A woman from Southern Aroostook County has hit it big!

Maine Lottery

Congratulations to Brenda Farrar of Amity on being the first winner of $100,000 in the new "Gimme5" draw game by the Maine State Lottery.

Brenda matched all five numbers and "got her hand on a hundred grand!"

Brenda purchased the winning ticket at T&S Market in Hodgdon.

I had a chance to speak with Brenda via telephone this afternoon. Here's what she had to say.

When I asked Brenda about if she was going to return to work or not, this is what she said.

She said she is still unsure what she is going to do with the money, but she plans on giving some of it to her kids, paying off some bills and possibly investing some of it.

Congratulations to Brenda!
