After the all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner fundraiser at Big Boy Restaurant last Thursday night, the library now has almost $23,000 towards the $50,000 matching grant. They raised $5,551 between the dinner and the tips.
“It was a great evening,” said Library Director Donna Clark. “We’re having fun and that’s important.”
Several door prizes were given away, including a Red Flannel town license plate, license plate frame, pies, books, and other items.
The next Big Boy fundraiser will be a taco bar in April.
