Day 212: Friends of the Ashland Library

4 Nov

Last evening we had dinner with our neighbors Deb and Armo and I was reminded that tomorrow (Saturday, November 5) the Friends of the Ashland Library will be hosting one of their biggest fundraising events – the Annual Book Sale and Silent Auction. The hours for this event are from 12:00 to 4:00 PM on Saturday (with a members only presale from 10AM til noon – and yes, memberships are available at the door!) and from 12:00 to 3:00PM on Sunday.

This is a wonderful chance for you to purchase gifts for the holidays and feel good about the money that you are spending because it will benefit our beautiful library. There will be hundreds of books available for purchase in new or nearly new condition. In addition, many local businesses have donated goods or services to the auction and the volunteers have put these items together in a number of themed gift baskets for you to bid on.

Since I knew that the volunteers would be working long hours today finalizing preparations for this big sale, I sent a Bacon and Cheddar Quiche to the library so that they might have something to sustain them. This afternoon I received a text from Deb with these words: “If it hadn’t been for your quiche, we’d’ve not had the engergy to still be working… we are so lucky.” Actually, we the people of Ashland, are the lucky ones to have such dedicated volunteers working to keep our library as wonderful as it is.

    Karen…your pie was such a treat, and the delicious aroma filled the Gresham Room within seconds! Oh my…we had a mountain of books to sort!
    Your quiche really did give us the energy we needed to get it done!
    Thank you for such loving support!
    ciao…deb
