LIBRARY NEWS for the TIMES OF SHREWSBURY, OCTOBER 2017
MANY THANKS to everyone who made possible another great HAYSTACK DINNER & STREET DANCE: Everyone who donated food — PINE VALLEY FARM, ALCHEMY GARDENS, CARAVAN GARDENS, EVENING SONG FARM, KRUEGER-NORTON SUGARHOUSE, and area grocery stores (thanks to MARGE for soliciting donations); everyone who cooked the delicious food, and prepped the fresh vegetables (especially DONNA, and MARGE, JUDY, TRISH and PAM); everyone who cleaned and washed dishes (especially GAIL); everyone who set up and decorated tables (especially LISA); and everyone who cleaned up afterwards (especially TRISH, PETER & PAM, JESSICA, and GERRY). HUGE THANKS to our great COMMUNITY BLUES BAND (led by MARCOS with bandmates AARON, DIRK, EMMETT, PAUL, and SEAMUS) for donating their time and making terrific music: better every year! And THANKS to CHRYL, our town’s roving reporter, for photos to commemorate the event. We’re grateful too for everyone who came and enjoyed the evening!
We were glad to use the MEETING HOUSE (or THE TOWN HALL, as we older-timers call it) for the well-kept, comfortable community space that we shouldn’t take for granted.
