And the Winners Are…

Our first ever Labor Day Raffle was a smashing success by all measures! We received 20 generous donations from local businesses and residents, and hundreds of people—year rounders, summer residents, and visitors—bought nearly 2,000 tickets. Two dozen volunteers logged over 100 hours selling raffle tickets on the library porch, and we raised a grand total of $11,742!

In short, WOW! So without further delay, here are the winning ticket numbers:
