Picture perfect ..
The folks at Everyone’s Federal Credit Union decided they could help raise the amount of their contribution to the United Way. So, they bought a painting of a windmill by Broadview artist, Margaret Pearce Mote, which they put up for raffle. The result was a $750 gift to the United Way.
The winner of the painting was local businessman David Hale.
Accepting the check from Andi Baum of the credit union are United Way board members. From left, are Don White, Doyle Frasier, Alan Wright, David Hale, Andi Baum, Kathleen Frasier, Vic Baum and Leslie Osborn.
