WLA Executive Director
Hampshire Lottery Teams Up with New Hampshire Home Builders Association to
Kick-Off Tiny House New Hampshire
CONCORD, N.H.(October 28, 2016)
The New Hampshire Lottery and the New Hampshire Home Builders
Association (NHHBA) formally launched Tiny House New Hampshire, a unique and
fun workforce development initiative, during a press conference today at
Alvirne High School in Hudson. As part of the new initiative, high school
students from Career Technical Center construction programs at four schools
across the state will design and build tiny houses, which typically
span 100- and 400-square-feet. The tiny house movement has gained momentum in
recent years as people have sought to downsize their living space, according to
The New Hampshire Lottery is
thrilled to partner with the New Hampshire Home Builders Association on this
exciting new program that is giving students a chance to learn valuable skills
as they design and build tiny houses, said Charlie McIntyre, executive
director of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission.
The New Hampshire Lottery
has generated more than $1.7 billion for education during our 52-year history,
and Tiny House New Hampshire is another opportunity to make a positive impact
on the lives of New Hampshire students.
In partnering with NHHBA, the New
Hampshire Lottery contributed custom trailers for transporting tiny houses. The
student-built homes will be displayed during the 50th New Hampshire State Home
Show from March 17 to March 19, during which a panel of judges will choose the
first-place tiny house. Four of the five homes will be raffled or auctioned
during the New Hampshire State Home Show, with proceeds benefiting the
participating schools and NHHBA.
The New Hampshire Home
Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders have had a
long history of engaging our future home builders in unique projects,
said Paul Sullivan, president, New Hampshire Home Builders Association.
Building a tiny house gives our students the opportunity to use the
construction skills they are taught in the classroom. Our goal is to get them
excited about becoming builders in our community and enjoy successful
To help drive awareness and interest
in this new program, the New Hampshire Lottery is also launching a new scratch
ticket game, Tiny House Big Money, and the top second-chance
prize will be one of the student-built tiny houses. Tiny House Big Money, which
features a $10,000 grand prize, will launch in January.
Building the tiny house
will be a great experience for the whole class, said Jamie Sherman, a
building trades student at Alvirne High School. Some of us want to go
into this field after graduation and others want to have a little bit of
background information on construction and carpentry for the future they are
going to pursue. Making this tiny house as a class will be great for us to
learn team work and what it is like to be in the real world on a job
Nearly 100 students from the
following New Hampshire high schools are taking part in Tiny House New
Hampshire and will build a total of five tiny houses:
- Huot Technical Center, which is a regional Career
Technical Center program for students in the Lakes Region
- Kennett High School in North Conway
- Alvirne High School in Hudson
- Seacoast School of Technology, which has formed two
teams that will each build a tiny house.
Tiny House New Hampshire is
an authentic learning opportunity for students from the four Career Technical
Centers, providing new curriculum in our school in electrical, plumbing,
heating and building finishes in addition to typical building
processes, said Steve Beals, principal at Alvirne High School.
Our students and staff are
excited to be part of the growing national popularity of tiny houses and the
skills learned will help students better understand the growing needs of
skilled homebuilders. Skills in homebuilding will provide a lifetime asset to
all students, whether continuing in the trade in the future or simply hoping to
fulfill the American dream of homeownership. We are fortunate to be part
of Tiny House New Hampshire and appreciate the efforts of the New Hampshire
Lottery and the New Hampshire Homebuilders Association.
NHHBA expects it to take about 550
hours for students to complete the homes, with a budget of $15,000 to $20,000
for each house. NHHBA is sourcing all materials for the program and is seeking
financial and material donations. NHHBA members are serving as mentors to
"Getting involved with the New
Hampshire Home Builders Association, the Lakes Region Chapter of the Builders'
Association, along with resources made available to us by the New Hampshire
Lottery, has been an exceptional opportunity for students to receive in-depth,
hands-on experiences in many of the construction phases that is challenging for
our technical programs to achieve, said Matthew Towle, building
construction instructor at J. Oliva Huot Technical Center in Laconia.
The project has created an
immense amount of energy for our students and my programming. I look forward to
the connections that our industry professionals will be making with young

Lottery, other partner organizations include Dead River Company, Harvey
Building Products, Selectwood, and Builders Installed Products.

Patenaude, Interim President and CEO of Loto Québec, Has
QUEBEC, Montreal, Canada (October
31, 2016) It is with immense regret that Loto-Québecs Board
of Directors and executive management learned that Simon Patenaude, President
of Lottery Operations and, since last March, LotoQuébecs Interim
President and CEO, has passed away. Mr. Patenaude was admitted to hospital last
August for heart-related problems. He died on October 28 following a pulmonary
embolism that resulted in a heart attack.
Corporations managers and employees received the sad news early this
morning. In a note addressed to all staff, Lynne Roiter, Secretary General and
Vice President of Legal Affairs, who had taken over for Mr. Patenaude as
Interim President and CEO, praised the human and professional qualities of this
beloved colleague: Over the past 30 years, many of us got to know
Simon well. Highly respected as a colleague and manager, he was particularly
known for his dedication, leadership, charisma and concern for the good of our
company. But more than that, he was considered a great man for his human
qualities, his sense of humour, close ties with employees and genuine interest
in the people around him.
Hélène F. Fortin,
Chairman of Loto-Québecs Board, also paid tribute to Mr.
Patenaude, both personally and on behalf of the Members of the Board:
Simon was a pillar of our Corporation because of his leadership, his
kindness, his vision and his many other qualities. He made a tremendous
contribution in shaping Loto-Québec over the years and making it the
success it is today. He will always be remembered. It was a privilege to know
him and have crossed his path.
Simon Patenaude began his career at
Loto-Québec in 1984 in the Marketing Department and climbed the ranks to
General Manager of Marketing in 2001. Twelve years later, he was appointed
Corporate Vice President of Communications and Public Affairs, later returning
to the Lotteries sector as Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and then
President of Lottery Operations, a position he held since March 2015. Last
spring, he was named Loto-Québecs Interim President and CEO.
To ensure the continuity of
commercial activities, Isabelle Jean, Vice President of Corporate Strategy,
Innovation and Public Affairs, will continue acting as Interim President
Lottery Operations, and Lynne Roiter as Loto-Québecs Interim
President and CEO.
On behalf of all
Loto-Québecs employees, we wish to offer our sincere condolences
to Simon Patenaudes family, friends and close acquaintances.

Pennsylvania Lotterys Beloved Snowfall
Commercial Returns for 25th Season
PA Lotterys Beloved
Snowfall Commercial Returns for 25th Season
MIDDLETOWN, Pennsylvania (October
31, 2016) -- On November 1, the Pennsylvania Lotterys beloved
Snowfall commercial, featuring Joe, Rita, and the carolers, returns
to television for its 25th holiday season. Its catchy jingle is a shortened
take-off on The 12 Days of Christmas, with six lottery games
filling in for the traditional swans-a-swimming, gold rings and turtle
The moment they hear the
carolers sing, many Pennsylvanians reflexively smile, sing along and mentally
count the weeks until they can put up the tree, said Lottery
Executive Director Drew Svitko. We are proud that our popular
commercial brings back so many warm memories for viewers and has become a
Keystone State holiday tradition.
The original commercial, filmed in
Pittsburgh, aired from 1992 to 2011. In 2012, the Lottery produced a
high-definition, shot-for-shot remake in Philadelphia. It began airing that
The remake is such a
faithful reproduction that many viewers couldnt tell the
difference, Svitko added. The biggest hint is that the newer
version is produced in wide-screen format. Plus, if you look carefully, you may
notice some LED lights.
The commercial highlights the annual
release of the Lotterys holiday-themed instant games, which went on sale
October 25. This years games are: $1,000,000 Snow Bank ($20), Trim the
Tree ($10), Frosty Ca$h ($5), Freezin Greetings ($3), Unwrap the Cash
($2) and Merry Money ($1). Instant tickets make a great gift for anyone who is
18 or older.
The Snowfall commercial will air in
rotation with a new holiday commercial in which Gus, Pennsylvanias second
most famous groundhog, goes sledding.
About Us: The Pennsylvania
Lottery remains the only state lottery to direct all proceeds to programs that
benefit older residents. Since ticket sales began in 1972, it has contributed
nearly $27 billion to fund property tax and rent rebates, transportation, care

Get a Taste of the New ICC Sydney
SYDNEY, Australia (November 4, 2016)
-- A group of 120 inquisitive exhibitors took over the new International
Convention Centre at Darling Harbour today. Comprising both large and small
exhibitors, with their exhibition contractors and their staff, along with the
AGE coordinating team, it was a chance to get a firsthand glimpse of what is
truly a world class venue for AGE 2017.
Divided into 5 groups of 24, with
each group being led by two representatives of the ICC, the visitors were
escorted into the building via the imposing main entrance stairway that leads
to a very impressive exhibition foyer and registration area.
The groups then got to see the
multi-purpose seminar rooms complete with smart lecterns, remote powered
privacy screens and flexible seating arrangements.
They also got to see the enormous
loading tunnel which will allow all four halls being used for AGE 2017, to be
But the highlight of the visit was
Hall 3 and while they saw only ½ of the massive 19,000 square
metres of floor space that AGE will be occupying in 2017, one visitor was still
impressed enough to describe the hall as Cavernous.
The whole group was then treated to
a light lunch at LAqua on Cockle Bay where Ross Ferrar the CEO of the
event organiser announced that already 80% of the floor space has been
sold for 2017.
