Pictou County woman is now Set for Life

Imagine all of the things you could do with $1,000 a week for 25 years.

Well, for one Pictou County woman, she no longer has to dream.

Ericka Raugh of West River recently scratched and won the top Set for Life prize from Atlantic Lottery, and opted to take the lump sum payment of $675,000.

Raugh doesn't plan on retiring from her job at Nova Truck Centre in Westville, but she is going to take a few days off to let the good news sink in.

She also plans on buying a new vehicle to replace her truck she says has been "limping along" for the last year.

The winning ticket was sold at Needs-Fast Fuel in Stellarton, which will receive a one per cent seller's prize.
