Last Saturday night's movie in Brewsters' back yard was a big success. Not just the movie, but the food, the games, the sociability of it all and, also important, we added just a short of $1,000 for the new library. What more could we ask for? We can certainly thank Judith Wolfman (who put the fine evening together with Joan Roberts' aid) and Judith's great crew: Louise and Darryl Cassidy, Maxine and Ron Clark, Liz Otwell and Stephen Falk, Margot Griffiths, Vyna Restell, Melissa Meyer, Don Falk, Peter Laritt, Sarah Wolfman, Aliya Virani, and Ania Tersakian. And the 100 or so folks who came and enjoyed and contributed in every way to the evening. And especially the many, many kids!
One of the features was having your picture taken with ET (thanks to the wonders of photoshopping), which was also, of course, the movie being shown. Here's one of those.
This week (Saturday, 3rd, 7:30 p.m.) you get another chance to join us for an evening of midsummer night's entertainment, including a photo op with Goldie Hawn, I imagine, as well as terrific food, more games, and a showing of "Overboard" with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. The last outdoor movie, Saturday, August 17th, will be "Field of Dreams," which surely is the appropriate symbol for our (or any) library fundraising project. Maybe we should have a photo of everyone saying to everyone else, "Good Job!" Bring a chair and a blanket; it gets cool after sundown.
"And how are we doing?" people often ask. The answer: the community that is raising/donating funds for this new library is doing well...$220,000. But we need another $80,000 by the end of the year. Please help if you can. It really will take all of us working together to build this new library.
