“From the very first year that we started this fundraiser, the Johnson Family has supported our annual raffle basket efforts by encouraging us to display our themed-‘baskets’ at Valley Bowling for a week with the idea that more members of the community can see these great baskets and help YPL,” stated Library Director Kristy Wallace. “If people can’t make it to the library during our regular business hours they have an opportunity to stop by Valley Bowling instead. We are so appreciative and grateful that the Johnson’s are so community minded. Not only do they host our fundraiser event and contribute to our K-12 Summer Super Reader program, they also make it a point to host at least one bowling charity event each year as well.”
