Avis Cartier and her extended family are going to the Puyallup Fair on Patch.
The Lakewood woman was one of four Week 1 winners of Patch's . All she had to do was sign up for a free newsletter.
(There's still time for you to do so. )
And we are so happy that Cartier won! The military widow who runs plans on taking some of her guests - a.k.a. her extended family - to the fair. Patch might even tag along.
"You guys are really cool," she says while meeting with Patch's editor at Forza in University Place.
Aw schucks. That's enough to make an editor blush. Keep signing up for those newsletters, everyone!
