Friends Annual Christmas Open House - Monday, Dec. 2, 2019

Friends of the library Annual Meeting


Our guest speaker will be Kati Krouse, director of BEARS, ETC, A Bear and Exotic Animal Rescue Sanctuary. We will be making the final plans for our Christmas Open House. Bring an ornament for the Friend's Christmas tree.


"Everything Christmas...

Angels to Nutcrackers

and everything in between."


I could only add. Remember it's a small tree so think proportionally. Hopefully, we will be electing our 2020 officers. Please plan to attend this very important meeting. 

Meet you there. 

Carol Smith, FOL, Prez


Due to the responsibility of record keeping I am proposing that we move Membership from a committee to an office. As required I am posting this at least 3 weeks prior to our Annual Meeting of October 28th at which time we will vote. A 2/3 majority is required for passage. 

Thank you for your consideration.

Carol Smith FOL, President
