Lasagna fundraiser for Six Mile library a success

SIX MILE — More than 100 people showed up to eat a lasagna dinner, listen to country music and bid on silent auction items at the Community Library of Six Mile fundraiser Saturday evening.
“We raised $2,126 for our library,” said Brenda Rippy, chairwoman of the library. “The community came out and supported our event, and we’re so thankful.”
The funds will be used for the library’s monthly expenses. Rippy expects the library to be open to the public in a few weeks.
J.D. Brown and his Rowdy Friends band with Alda Smith entertained the crowd for the evening.
Rippy thanked all the businesses and individuals who donated items for the event, the Six Mile Lions Club for cooking and serving the lasagna dinner and the J.D. Brown band for keeping the entertainement going through the night.
“I also want to thank all the volunteers who have worked tirelessly to make this event a success,” she said.
Rippy said the need for funds is an ongoing process. If anyone would like to make a donation, Rippy asks that it be sent to P.O. Box 71, Six Mile, SC 29682.
