SPY’s Announce Newest Platinum Sponsor
Fourteen years ago, the SPY membership took formal action to create a complimentary program that parallels their Corporate Sponsorships.
It is designed to accommodate and recognize individuals that, like the businesses in our Corporate Sponsor program, have stepped forward to provide significant financial support for our activities. We call it the Platinum Sponsor program.
Each Platinum Sponsor has contributed at least $500 to our organization in the past year. The SPY’s are indeed gratified in that kind of support, especially when COVID restrictions continue to hamper our ability to conduct a number of our fund-raising activities.
Today we salute Conrad Beeler for becoming the newest member of our Platinum Sponsor ranks. Mr. Beeler is relatively new to our community and we really appreciate his willingness to help with the financial needs of our youth and community projects and programs. Thank you Conrad!
May I Have Your Attention Please
Friends of the Sunfield District library will be holding their annual Christmas raffle on December 11th. this year. If you would like to donate an item for the raffle, we would appreciate it. All donations need to be in by October 30th.. Tickets will be available at the library starting November 2nd. We hope for another good year. Money from the raffle goes to help fund the summer reading program and other extra events such as Ming the Magician, who appears at the Farmer’s Picnic.
Thanks for your support!

• Did You Know Section: Purkinje Effect states that as the lights dim, our eyes get more sensitive towards the blue end of the spectrum. This is the reason why in movie theaters, chairs are usually red. In low light, red is the first color the human eye loses sight of, hence enhancing our viewing experience.
