Congratulations to our 2017 quilt raffle winners! The draw was held on Sept. 18 at 11 a.m. First prize of a queen size quilt was won by Gail Abel of Enderby; second prize lap quilt by Ken Clark of Greenwood; and third prize of a book bag with books was won by Sharon Strettan of Christina Lake.

A big thank you to all who sold tickets for us: Caba’s and Heart ‘n’ Sole Quilts in Grand Forks, and Tomorrow’s Treasures in Greenwood. Also thanks to those who allowed us to sell tickets at their venues: Founders Day in Greenwood, Overwaitea Foods, Canada Day, and Park in the Park in Grand Forks. Not to forget those volunteers and board members who made the quilts and sold the tickets—thanks! All proceeds from this raffle go to the purchase of books and other materials for the library.
