Monday afternoon, Aug. 12, the Friends of the Long Lake Library celebrated their 20th anniversary with displays in the library and music and delicious refreshments on the lawn. The displays included photo albums from early years and a timeline of Friends events through the years.
Mary Ann Roche, the current chair of the Friends, presented a plaque -- to be mounted on the library wall -- honoring all the members of the first board. They include Craig Gilborn, Julie Helms, Thomas Helms, Bruce Jennings, Judy Nerney, Sharon Waagner and myself.
On behalf of that first board and all those who continued the work of the Friends through the years, I want to thank the current board -- Mary Ann Roche, Jackie Mallery, Dona Hall, Carol Benson, Jackie Hornstein, Paul Roalsvig and Pam Speer -- for putting together this wonderful celebration.
