Cambridge man wins camper

ST. CLAIRSVILLE – Cambridge resident Paul Hixson recently won a camper from Stewart’s RV Center in St. Clairsville. The contest was sponsored by Riesbeck’s Food Markets, ConAgra Food, Stewart’s and WTRF 7.

The contest was a raffle, and patrons of all 16 Riesbeck’s locations were able to enter. Hixson said he and his wife, Cindy, only submitted one entry each, so they were surprised to learn he had won. Friends told him they had entered the contest as many as twenty times.

“It’s crazy, just blew my mind,” he said, adding that he has never won anything so large in his life.

Hixson said he does not have any big plans for the Jayco Sport Camper yet, but the timing is prime since he just retired last fall. He and his wife said they have grandchildren who they are sure will enjoy using the camper.

Riesbeck’s has two locations in Hixson’s hometown of Cambridge.
