McDonald’s Book Exchange celebrated its one-year anniversary in its new location, 16210 N.E. 80th St. in Redmond, and its 38th year in business during the month of July.
After reading about the Redmond Fire Department’s Pancake Breakfast, the staff put together a raffle basket (estimated value at more than $100) and chose the Redmond Fire Department (RFD) Benevolent Fund as the beneficiary. On July 31, four members of the RFD (pictured — Capt. John Keffer, Lt. Matt Peterson, firefighter Scott Carlson and driver Mark Mullins) came to the bookstore for the drawing. McDonald’s owner Anne St. Germain (pictured) matched the funds raised from ticket sales. Keffer chose the lucky ticket, the winner has been notified and the Reporter will print their name at a later date.
