Arts and Music Festival

Just a quick note to say that we had a terrific weekend between the Saturday night movie in Brewster's yard and the sale of quilted goods at the Arts and Music Festival: all proceeds for both went to the library.  And then Auntie Pam came out with a second check from her consignment clothes for our cause and IGive sent a second check.  All told, $600 from the movie, $900 from festival, $300 from Auntie Pam and $100 from IGive: $1900.

And add to that a very generous gift of $1,000 from Trinity Lutheran Church in its 100th Anniversary year, and another generous gift of $10,000 from Galen Wood, of Point Roberts (and the $10,000 is matched by our "Founders' Circle matching fund).  What a community: support everywhere you look!

There will be another movie on the evening of August 17th ("Fields of Dreams") and a Latin jazz concert as well on August 18, both to benefit the Library.  We are having some summer!
