Greetings From The President

Ellen Dewey


Remember: the October meeting will be at SFT Fire & Rescue

I just can’t express how excited I am about our 2016-
2017 year! Our Membership Drive has brought in new
members interested in cultural and community literacy
issues, the Dinner Cruise for Two from Queens Landing
Raffle is underway, our Programs, Events, and Meetings
Calendar has been unveiled, the Literacy Project at SF and Catawba Elementary Schools is continuing, the Foyer Book Bonanza is going strong, the American Girl Doll Kit Project is ex- panding, and an Electronic Circuits Kit Project will be finalized for pres- entation at this month’s meeting.

Many of you will notice a big change in our calendar – Fewer meetings have been scheduled, and they are no longer on the same date as our Programs or Events. Hopefully, this will allow us to better enjoy the programs and interact with the presenters and with each other, and more can be accomplished at the three meetings dedicated solely to business. Commitees will report at meetings, and members will have an opportunity to fully dis- cuss the issues before a vote is taken.

We have important business at the October 18th meeting, some of which will need your vote. With your input, we will finalize our plans for the next few events, particularly for February’s Music Variety Show!! If you know an amateur instrumentalist or singer or group who would like a chance to perform in public, please let us know! This is not a competition, but an opportunity to perform for a very supportive public audience. Spread the word! This meeting will be at SFT Fire and Rescue on Slanting Bridge Rd due to early voting security at the library.

And of course, door prizes will be drawn for members, and the raffled Dinner Cruise for Two will be drawn!! New memberships and renewals will still qualify for a door prize ticket at the library desk by the 14th and at the meeting on the18th! Please make every effort to attend. If you canot attend, please designate a member to pick up your door prize.

See you soon,
Ellen Dewey


We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Sherrills Ford Branch Library.  Please join us.
