The special raffle with tickets being sold throughout the season for a beautiful quilt realized over $300 for the Eudunda Bowling Club. The material for the quilt had been purchased by the late Deadra Leditschke, and was beautifully made by Deadra’s friend Mary Laucke, who selflessly donated the quilt to the Eudunda Bowling Club in memory of Deadra. The raffle was drawn by Bob Leditschke and was won by Eudunda bowler Ron Hams.
