BOLTON LANDING - The Bolton Free Library recently held a raffle with the winner receiving an Old Town "Otter" kayak that was donated by the employees of F.R. Smith and Sons, Inc.
The kayak was won by Jane Gabriels of Bolton, a long time patron, past trustee, and president of the Bolton Free Library.
The irony of that win is that Mrs. Gabriels had been the one to encourage F.R. Smith and Sons to donate the kayak to begin with.
Gabriels has donated that kayak back to the library to raffle again, this time with the hope that a child will win and enjoy this tremendous prize for many years to come, she said.
Tickets are now on sale at 25 cents apiece and must be won by someone aged 18 or younger. Tickets can be purchased by anyone, at the Bolton Free Library or from Mrs. Schroeder at Bolton Central School. A ticket holder need not be present to win. The drawing will be held on Dec. 2 in conjunction with the Friends of the Library Annual Winter Reading.
