The town's recreation department usu- ally holds a St. Patrick's Day dinner for the town, but this year organizers added a few fundraising events like a silent auc- tion that included an original painting by Frannie resident Marie Bramson, hand- crafted jewelry and more, plus a live auc- tion of home baked goodies. The auctions netted $4,040 and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans donated an additional $300 to the cause. All of the proceeds were donated to Yates. Mark Sorenson acted as auctioneer, netting as much as $60 for a single home- made apple pie. Assisted by his wife Mona and niece Caitlyn, Sorenson kept the crowd entertained and in the spirit of giving. "We tease him all the time about how he really likes to attend auctions, but we had to talk him into being the auctioneer," said Deaver town clerk Vanna Camp. "He did a great job though." The event attracted a full house of more than 100 people to dine on a corned beef and cabbage dinner prepared by vol- unteers from the Deaver Recreation Dept. The family-friendly dinner also included an alternative hot dog entr6e, which the kids seemed to appreciate. Yates attended along with wife Molly and other family members. Residents from Deaver and neighboring towns also attend- ed with many donating items to both the silent and live auction. Book art contest begins April 1 BY PHYLLIS BRONKEMA Donna Capellen, head librarian of the Lovell Li- brary, has come up with an exciting idea. It was in- spired by the number of old' books that are dropped offat the library to be either sold again or discarded. Rather than allow that, she rea- soned, why not "transform" them into something else? This project is intend- ed for all area youth from kindergarten through 12th grade who attend home schools, Lovell schools or Rocky Mountain schools. Ms. Capellen found a book with instructions for making a lamp out of old books. She took a number of old Reader's Digest con- densed books and turned them into lamps, which are currently being used on the reading tables in the li- brary. Next, a local girl from a home school turned an old book into a mobile, which is also on display at the li- brary. Thus the idea was born to invite all area youth to turn other old books into works of art. The contest will begin on April 1 and completed entries should be turned in to the library by April 27. Prizes sponsored by the local library board will be awarded in the following age categories: K-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12. A first prize of $75, second prize of $50 and third prize of $25 will be given in each of the four categories. Contestants can pick up books to use for their projects at the Lovell Li- brary. Some may also be delivered to schools. A re- source book of ideas will be delivered to each school, or participants are invited to come to the library to look at a couple more. All entries must be de- livered to the Lovell Branch Library no later than April 27. Judging will take place on April 30. Entries will be on display at the library through May 11.
