CORNWALL – A break during an overtime shift turned a little sweeter for a Cornwall man.

Stephen Lepage, 58, discovered he had won $250,000 on an Instant Monopoly ticket while taking some rest time at a local manufacturing company.

“I left work to share the good news with my wife and verify my ticket. Then I returned to work – cool as a cucumber,” Lepage laughed. “This win feels good, it’s exciting to think about the impact this will have on my family.”

He plans to take his family to Disney and Lepage is comforted in knowing that his wife will be able to retire at the end of the year.

“The freedom, the stability, the quality of life that this win brings – it’s wonderful.”

The winning ticket was bought at Circle K on Second Street East in Cornwall.
