Morinville – Two bucks can go a long way to helping a local cause and a long way towards winning a one-of-a-kind creation. The Friends of the Morinville Public Library are holding their second annual Teddy Bear Raffle, once again giving away a hand-made fur teddy bear. Friend’s President April Heppleston said there was some concern last year from library patrons the bear was made from real fur. The fundraiser said vintage coats and not newly acquired furs are the source of the bear’s material.
“Last year’s bear was our Centennial bear. It included a Centennial coin and was made from a coat that was light coloured mink with dark brown leather,” Heppleston explained. “This year’s bear is a very dark brown Mouton; sheepskin made to resemble sheared beaver.”
