Raffle of Books to Benefit GSRS

Before she passed away, Past President Lucille Bowles appointed Sandra Turney to
take care of her genealogical materials.  This turned out to be 17 boxes of materials
which Sandra has been going through and preparing for placement in the Danbury
Library’s Genealogy Room, a place very dear to Lucille’s heart.  Also included in this
collection was a copy of each of the two volumes of the original Stokes County
Heritage Books.  The original Volume One, the 1981 printing, is out of print and only
50 copies were ordered in the second printing, so are extremely valuable.  They will
be offered for sale through a raffle to benefit RSGS and to honor Lucille.  The raffle
tickets may be purchased for $2.00 each, three tickets for $5.00, or six tickets for
$10.00. When you order your tickets, please include your name, address, telephone
number, how many tickets you are ordering, and the money for purchase.  The two
volumes will be sold as one unit, so a ticket buys a chance on the set.  The tickets
may be purchased from Sandra Turney at 2394 Brown Mountain Road, Pilot
Mountain, NC 27041, or may be purchased at any meeting of the society. The
drawing for the winner will be held at the Spring Swap Meet, April 22, 2017, at the
Francisco Fire Department.  The winner does not have to be present to win and will
be notified within a week of the drawing.
*We Love!
I really appreciate your collection of resources on the website. I became interested in
genealogy after I was assigned a research project in the field. From that research, we ended up publishing
a great article that covers all areas of genealogy. Thank you for your wonderful resources!
