I want to thank everyone who came out to support the Howland Public Library at our third annual Fabulous February Fundraiser on Presidents’ Day! It was a great success, and a wonderful indication of just how important the library is to our community. We were lucky to have several artist, authors, dancers, musicians, puppeteers and storytellers donate their talents to raise funds for our library. A huge thank you to Jonathan Kruk, Peter Ullian, The Rivertown Kids, The Tioronda Kids, Evan Pritchard, Studio B, Susan Lewis, T. Charnan Lewis and Angela Helland. Also, thanks to the organizations that came to support the library: Adams Fairacre Farms, Beacon Arts, Beacon Reads, Sargeant-Downing Gardens, Stonykill Farm Environmental Education Center, The Beacon Historical Society, The Beacon Theater and The Howland Cultural Center. Lastly, I would like to thank Vickie Raabin, Prudence Posner, Phyllis Keaton, the Board of FOHPL, the event volunteers and the library staff for their tremendous dedication to insuring our library’s success.
President, Friends of Howland Public Library
