The Friends of the Library would like to thank all those who made our 12th annual Holiday Open House a rousing success. Special thanks to Howsers IGA for their generous donation of food, to Mountain Market for coffee and cups, and to Haines Packing for letting us cut down a tree from their property at Letnikof Cove. I think it’s one of our best ever. Thank you to those who so beautifully decorated the little trees for our silent auction. We raised more than $3,400 between the trees and our home heating fuel raffle. Barbara Pardee, Denise Sherman, and Peter Dwyer were our lucky winners. And last, but not least, thank you to everyone who came to enjoy the decorations, food, music and children’s activities.
