The Library needs volunteers to help at the food and game stations at the annual Memorial Day event

Esteemed Neighbors:

The Library needs volunteers to help at the food and game stations at the annual Memorial Day event following the parade. Interested volunteers should call the Library at 351-2207 x 18 (ask for Florence). The event is from about 11-3 on Monday May 29 but any chunk of time is welcomed!

This is a great event that really helps to support our local library. If you can’t volunteer please consider attending. There’s lots of fun activities for the kids and grown ups too!
