I forgot to include three things in yesterday's post: first, the new fundraising totals: (unofficial total) $80,000. There are also pledges for next year and though the official totals include only money that has been received, the unofficial totals are a little looser but even there I have not included the $35,000 in pledges that have been made for next year.
Second, a reminder that Neilson's Hardware is giving the library fund $5 for each Christmas tree that it sells. (Thank you, Lorne and Kris; thank you, buyers; thank you, trees.) And, finally, a few people have asked me whether we still have bookmarks ($10 donation), and the answer is Yes! Talk to Rose at the library. She has custody of them. And not counted but still a thing: if you are on Facebook, go to our Facebook Page and 'like' it. That's the faster update and also you could win a permanent nametag with a fine bird on it.
