By Toni Walker
Editor of The Bee
 
Friends of the Daingerfield Public Library had a quilt donated by Joan Richardson, which they then used to raise funds for the library. Mrs. Richardson was given the quilt, finished in Feb. 2010, while she was battling cancer. After fightingcancer, she wanted the quilt “to go to someone who would use it,” said librarian Earlene Walton. The group raised $130, which will be used to help pay for the library’s summer programs. The group has also helped pay for the library’s OverDrive, which is the e-book program. Jonah Walker, of Daingerfield, drew the winning ticket from all entries, and Mrs. June Morris of Daingerfield was the lucky winner.
