IN OTHER NEWS
Last Sunday's Library Literary Event was a huge success. We had a capacity turnout and by all counts, everyone really enjoyed the presentation with Al Pace integrating the canoe trips he and his team lead in the Yukon and his pottery.
The inspiration for his work was obvious and thrilling to see. The social event afterwards included a feast of hors d'oeuvres created by the Library Ladies – Bev, Jade, Trudy and Rose – moose and venison meatballs, smoked salmon, tortiere, maple log donut bars, maple tarts and ‘smores. The décor was enhanced with a canoe at the entrance welcoming patrons and paddles etc., brought in by Jim and Diane, our wonderful volunteers.
