Book Sale history

At the August 1961 board meeting it was decided that the group’s money making project would be an annual book sale, to be continued as long as it is reasonably successful. The first book sale was held at the YMCA in April 1962. The profit was $200. For the next several years the sale was held in an empty store on Main Street. Since 1969 it has been at the Cow Palace on the Fond du Lac County Fairgrounds. The book sale continues to be successful and usually generates $18,000 to $20,000 profit to fund local scholarships for high school graduates and re-entry students, national fellowships and educational funds.
