The Cedar Springs Public Library raffled off a quilt as a fundraiser on Red Flannel Day, and raised $301. The lucky winner of the quilt was Diane Bengtson, a longtime resident of Cedar Springs.
Library Director Donna Clark related that when Friends of the Library President Louise King called her, Diane was flabbergasted, and clapping could be heard in the background as her family cheered for her. She reportedly said, “I never win anything! I wanted to support the library, so I bought some tickets.”
Members of the Friends of the Library sold tickets for five hours on Red Flannel Day, and the drawing was held at 5 p.m.
