ON THE LIBRARY
MAY 16, 2006
was wine and hors d’oeuvres you were looking for on Saturday night, the
David A. Howe Public Library was the place to find them.
The first annual Wine and Hors d’oeuvre Extravaganza was a great
success this past Saturday, and although it was a lot of work for everyone
on the Exchange Club and at the David A. Howe Public Library, we are
looking forward to an even better event next year.
We know the lines were long and the food moved fast, but we plan on
making adjustments. We can guarantee next year’s event will be even more
memorable and enjoyable for everyone that attends.
The library would like to thank all of the local merchants and
individuals that sponsored this event. Your partnership was essential to
bringing the community together for a great cause on Saturday night.
We would also like to thank the Exchange Club for coming forward to
plan and implement the event. Not only were you able to raise money for
your own worthy mission, but you were able to reach out and help the
thousands of people that use the library each year. Thank you everyone.
In addition to offering great wine and food this month, the library
will host many programs. This Monday, May 22 at 7 pm, the library will
offer a computer class that teaches patrons how to search the Internet for
great information on gardening and Spring home improvement. Patrons
interested in attending must call the library to register or stop by the
library’s Circulation Desk.
