Fundraiser benefits Evart Public Library

EVART — Evart Public Library officials are hopeful the community will help support them during their annual fundraiser, which is slated for Saturday, April 2.

"We always have a rip-roaring good time," said library director Lilas VanScoyoc with a laugh. "It's always a lot of fun. Money we raise from this will help us with our book budget and the summer reading program."

The event will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Moose Lodge located on U.S. 10 just east of Main Street. Dinner will include two types of meat, potatoes, noodles, vegetables, stuffing, a full salad and dessert bar and beverages.

In addition to dinner, raffles and door prizes are expected.

VanScoyoc said she hopes to raise about $2,000 from the event.

"Every year our funds get whittled down and this is our way to help make up the difference," she said. "I think this dinner helps the community see we're working to supplement that loss."
