This year’s Harvest Festival exceeded our expectations and goals!
We thank you for helping to make this Fundraiser a success for your Library and community by donating your time, efforts, items and money to this popular annual event!! The Friends has a long list of community businesses and people that we are truly appreciative of and we look forward to publicly acknowledging them soon.
In the meantime, a quick ‘sneak peek’ : There were 3 lucky winners in the Chili Cook-Off Contest to receive Restaurant Gift Certificates, a Library Trustee won the Golden Ticket prize at the raffle of the Blue Man Group tickets, the acoustic music by local talent was a huge hit as well as the children’s games, activities and Story Teller Performance, delicious food was donated by 3 popular restaurants and fall decorations were donated by a local farm.
We’re in the process of compiling the amounts raised from the Chili Cook-Off Contest, the Raffle, the Book Sale and the Bake Sale and will be announcing the total soon. We’re also gathering pictures from the many that were taken that day to post and share with all of you that were able to attend and for those that weren’t as fortunate!
Check back with us soon!!!
