The winner of this year’s Oglebay Park Mini-Vacation Contest is Shaun Lopez, planner II at Amos Plant.

“I was extremely shocked to hear the news that I had won the contest,” said Lopez. “In fact, I am quite certain I’ve never won any kind of prize before.”

Lopez and a guest will be treated to three days and two nights deluxe lodging, breakfast for two each morning and a dinner for two at Wilson Lodge’s beautiful Ihlenfeld Dining Room, as well as park admission passes for boating, fishing, miniature golf, tennis and swimming. The lucky winner has 12 full months from which to schedule his getaway.

This is the 19th year employees and retirees were invited to participate in the contest and, by far, the best year yet for responses. With more than 2,400 entries, the contest drew interest from all 11 states served by AEP, as well as North Carolina, Florida and Missouri.

Retired Ohio Power Company T&D director Lee Kelvington and his wife, Joan, are the benefactors of the annual getaway. It is the Kelvingtons’ love of Oglebay Park and fond memories of AEP that keep the contest alive.

“My wife and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary this year, so it is a timely win for us,” said Lopez. “With having four young children at home, we are both looking forward to the getaway, provided we find a brave and willing babysitter. We sincerely appreciate the Kelvington’s generosity.”
