The 2006 Spring Green Literary Festival Canoe Raffle:
In late 2005, David and Eileen Roeder, owners of Tranquility Canoes gracefully consented to give the Spring Green Literary Festival one of their Serenity canoes to raffle.
Between April and October 2006, members of the Spring Green Literary Festival board of directors sold over $5,000 worth of tickets, through rain, heat, and cold. On October 22, 2006, the canoe, Serenity #42, was awarded to Ruth Venable from Beloit, Wisconsin. She purchased her winning ticket at the Spring Green Arts and Crafts Fair in June.
The Spring Green Literary Festival Board is deeply grateful to the makers of Tranquility Canoes for their generosity in donating this beautiful, functional work of art. With the proceeds, the board can continue to attract the best authors and poets to the annual literary festival.
