Post Craft Fair

Well, we're almost a week out from the craft fair, which was busy enough, but probably not as well attended as last year.  Not such great weather and too great lines at the border, we think.  The New Library Fund is about $1,500 richer now between the selling of donated goods and the selling of Library Donation Cards for Christmas Gifts.  And that is matched, of course.

And then we have also received another half dozen or so generous gifts, all matched, as well. (Including a one thousand dollar donation from our sister committee, the Support Committee of the FOPRL.  I would high-five you if I knew how to do it in writing!)  All that is bringing us to about $290,000, I think.  So we are getting pretty close to the goal for the year, although we are still needing a little push.  If you haven't yet made a donation for this year, we'd be very happy to hear from you in these next two weeks: all donations matched, you'll recall.  And $300,000 the goal.

I want to take this post also to thank all the people who made donations to the library table: Pat Czuszor, Sandy Holland, Carrie Smith, Phillip Joseph, Madrona Yoga Studio, Justin Morgan, Ed Park, Esther Rosenthal, Heidi Baxter (who sold over $200 worth of her needle felted sheep for us!), Laura Vestanen, Joanna Harris, Joan Linde, Linda Bruce, Bev Mar, Terry Rey, Judy Ross, and probably two or three other knitters whose names I never got.  That is what made that $1,500 in sales possible.  Thanks to all of you for your great generosity in helping to make this library a reality.

And a second very big thank you to Margot Griffiths, Maxine Clark, Jane Donaldson, and Louise Cassidy, who helped to keep customers happy throughout the weekend.

Hope your Solstice and Christmas and everything else in these next two weeks are merry and bright, although I personally could pass on the snow.  Next time, 20014.  Upwards and onwards!
