ROSCOMMON COUNTY – Several law enforcement agencies across Roscommon County participated in a Hams for Tickets programs the week prior to Easter. Roscommon County Undersheriff Ben Lowe said money for the purchase 54 turkeys was donated by First Congregational Church in Roscommon. Lowe contacted Houghton Lake Walmart manager Jim VanSice, who arranged for the purchase of the turkeys at a discounted rate. About half were delivered to the homes of residents who were recommended by churches, neighbors or social service agencies.
