The group’s ticket was purchased Aug. 24 at the Red Apple Grocery on Marshall Road in Abbotsford.

Each member of the crew – who work at Rempel Bros. Concrete in Langley – will receive a cheque for $149,000.

Wayne Vander-Hoek of Abbotsford is the organizer of the group lottery pool.

“I got a call telling me that our group had won,” he said. “I didn’t know whether to laugh or start crying.”

Seven of the winners are from Abbotsford, eight are from Langley and the rest are from Surrey, White Rock, Delta and 100 Mile House.

Also on Wednesday, Eddie Uy of Richmond claimed a $7 million 6/49 win from the Aug. 3 draw.
