Community in Action

Our market bags, Shelburne Public Library supporting Green Thinking, have been a huge success. Volunteers in the community made the bags, community members donated the fabrics, and we partnered with the BIA market to support their work. Next week will be our last week at the market since our university students will be leaving us to return to school. Briana, Kassandra and Brittany have done an excellent job in promoting our library and our green thinking initiative.

Authors in the Hills of Mulmur – a huge success once again!

The fourth annual Authors in the Hills of Mulmur once again had a sellout audience who found the three authors stimulating and thought-provoking. I’m sure that if you attended and hadn’t read all the books, you certainly will want to do so. There are so many thanks to go around for that day, that I think applauding all those who participated, attended, donated their time and especially the opportunity to once again use the Foley barn should be recognized! See you in a barn, on a farm next year!
