Roanoke Elementary School first-graders from Paula Myers, Joyce Roth and Christa Spurgeon's classes recently donated $179.94 to the new Roanoke Public Library. The money was raised from cookie sales and donated in honor of classmate Drew Dorsett, who has been absent while battling cancer. Present for the donation were (front row, from left) Emalee Kline, Bradley Rentschler and Graci Shopoff and (back row, from left) Tony Fudge, Karen Baker and Celia Bandelier, director of the library.
