CENTERVILLE — Once again the Friends of the Drake Public Library had a successful gift wrapping fundraiser on Saturday, Dec. 8.  This was their seventh consecutive year of wrapping gifts for a free-will donation and the fifth year to hold the fundraiser at Dannco company on the Centerville square.

It was convenient for customers to park and carry their packages into the store to be wrapped. Many customers have been having the Friends wrap their gifts year after year. Some dropped their gifts off to be picked up later and some waited while their gifts were being wrapped.

The Friends wrapped an estimated 75 packages this year and the donations were generous. All of the proceeds will be used to support the Drake Public Library.

Volunteers included Sue Sacco, Nancy Jones, Lois Hays, Mary Sue Zaputil, Kimberly Stonehouse, Debbie Robinson and Colene Chebuhar.
