On Saturday, March 12, the Youngsville Public Library held its first (and we hope, annual) Bowling "Fun" Raiser.
The eight lanes at Valley Bowling Center were filled from 6 to 9 p.m. with adults and teens lending support to the library and showing off their bowling skills. Library director Kristy Wallace took over as "mistress of ceremonies" to welcome bowlers and hand out the many door prizes, "red pin" wagers and strike and spare awards.
Sue Perrin said, "The YPL would like to thank the many area businesses and individuals who donated to make this Bowling "Fun" Raiser a wonderful success. Without all the fantastic local support, the library could not continue serving the Brokenstraw community."
YPL Baskets Galore
Youngsville Public Library is sponsoring a Chinese auction of seven different themed baskets. Friends of the Library board members each selected a "theme" and gathered items to fill raffle baskets.
There is a Gift Card Tree Basket, a Lottery Tree Basket, a Relaxation Basket, a Baking Basket, a Wine and Cheese Basket, a Great for Guys Basket and a Dinner and A Movie Basket. The baskets will be at several locations until the March 23 drawing. All seven baskets are now on display at the Valley Bowling Center and then will move back to the library.
Tickets are $1 each or 10 tickets for $5. Tickets can be purchased at Valley Bowling Center, Youngsville Public Library and from any Library Friends board member or Library Board member.
