This year’s new shaped Griz pins have been selling fast.

Members of the Griz Days committee have said the pins are going fast, possibly because of the incentive of winning $1,000, as well as their new look.

“I have noticed that too with my guests that even though they won’t be here for Griz Days they are willing to buy a pin for the chance at the lottery,” said Barbara Larsen, who owns Barbara Lynn’s Country Inn.

The winner of the $1,000 will be announced following a draw on Monday, March 5.

All proceeds from the sale of the Griz pins goes to the Salvation Army.
