Friends of Your Library
Quilt Winner Drawn;
$3,833 Raised for Library
And the winner is - Elise Carlisle of Waynesville. She says, “Thank you so much for the quilt! I am so thankful for Myrtle Schrader being the super salesperson she was when she sold nearly everyone in my office, Dr. Darryl Nabors, 70 tickets total. I use our library often and am a huge fan of Friends of the Library. I hope your other projects do as well as this one seems to have.”
Mary Ann Budahl, fourth from left, of Carolina Quilters drew Carlisle’s winning ticket at 3 p.m. Dec. 18 at the Friend's Book Store. Budahl’s group handcrafted a queen-size Bear Went Over the Mountain quilt as a fund raising project for the Friends, who raised $3,833 to benefit the Sylva Library. Friends social chair Myrtle Schrader, second from right, who brought in the most ticket donations, turned the crank on this ticket drum created by Friends member Roy Osborn, right. Friends President Patricia Cowen, third from left, thanked Budahl and her group for their contribution and support. Participating in the drawing and project were Friends member Mary Anne Roos, left, and Gerlinde Lindy, second from left, Book Store manager.
