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.

We have a winner!


Our April Fools edition was last week, and several people correctly identified the two fake stories—World’s largest snowman in Cedar Springs and Red Flannel Ghost in Cedar Springs—and the fake ad—The Happy Trails Health Bar and Grill. We had a few little “Easter eggs” too, such as the Post banner being backwards, the “inside this issue” pages, and the masthead with fake titles. But as long as you got the fake stories and ads, you were in the drawing! Our winner of the fast $20 was Kelly Graham, of Solon Township. Thanks for playing!

April Fool’s winner


Congratulations to Kathy Anderson, of Algoma Township, the winner of our April Fool’s contest! Kathy’s name was drawn out of all those who correctly named the fake ad—The Rock On Salon, and all four fake stories—New Red Flannel Event (running of the bulls), Rockford Springs or Cedar Rock, Oldest cat to be featured on TV, and Tiger blood hits Cedar Springs. Kathy won a fast $20 cash for her efforts!
Kathy said she liked all the stories, but “best of all is the ad for the Rock on Salon. I’d go there every week! Keep up the good work all you creative people,” she said.
