Fire Chief Leroy Bromley with Island Variety clerk Betty Lou Croucher draw the winning ticket for the Sonya’s Window quilt.
The Long Island volunteer Department has been selling tickets on a beautiful, handmade quilt for the past couple of months. The quilt, pattern Sonya's Window, was made by Marion's Quilt Group of Long Island and donated to the fire department. Gloria Eveleigh of Beaumont was the lucky winner. The fundraiser netted $420 for the fire department.
