Come to the meeting of the Friends of HPL on Wednesday, April 13, 5:30-7pm, at the Library.
We are preparing for the gala fundraiser The Future Begins Here (May 1). If you have any auction items to donate for either the Silent Auction or the Live Auction, please contact President Tim Damon this week, or BRING the items with you on Wednesday.
This is the final week before the newspaper deadline for submission of the auction list, so we need to know what items and/or services will be offered. The Holyoke Public Library is one of three agencies participating in The Future Begins Here this year, the 20th anniversary of this fundraiser for children's services.
You can help us create attractive baskets and bundles (combining smaller donated items into packages worth $50 or more). We'll be working together in the History Room, 2nd floor, on Friday afternoon April 15. Contact Tim Damon, Peg McCarthy, or marypaz for details.
Additional help would be appreciated, too, in selling RAFFLE tickets -- a new addition this year. Come to Wednesday's meeting to learn more.
