Meat, anyone?

ASHLAND

Tuck in your napkins, meat-eaters.

The Ashland Lions Club is holding a charity meat raffle tomorrow at TJ Food and Spirits on Route 135 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Prizes include pork loins, pork and beef roasts, hams, hot dogs, Italian sausages, cheese, sirloin strips, chops, and a variety of steaks. The origin of meat raffles is not entirely clear, yet the Ashland event has managed to persevere even in an age of cholesterol concerns.
