An Embrun woman started the new year the right way after winning $250,000 from an Instant Crosswords Deluxe.

Lyne Carmichael was at home with dinner in the oven as she scratched her ticket. “I had so many words and thought I scratched an extra letter,” she said. “When I pulled out my phone and scanned the ticket and saw ‘Big Winner’ I was in shock.”

Her family celebrated the news before sitting down to dinner. The public servant planned to invest her winning for the future, and retirement. “We’ll take a trip as soon as we can travel,” she said. “Somewhere warm in the sun.”

The winning ticket was bought at Embrun Convenience on Notre-Dame Street.
