Greetings From The President

Ellen Dewey



My Knock Out Roses are red,
Unwanted Crown Vetch is blue,
Can’t seem to get ahead,
How about you?

Gosh, this spring is busy!! And I know this is especially true for Friends. Our April work meeting was extremely constructive. We brainstormed ideas
for 2016-2017 and beyond; programs, membership campaigns, library support projects, and more. You will be hearing about all of these exciting ideas very soon, but first we need YOUR input. You may receive an email, and perhaps a phone call over the next two months. SFTFOL leadership values everyone’s ideas about our future.

At the April meeting, the nominating committee presented the Slate of Officers for 2016-2017: President – Ellen Dewey, VP – Joanie Gardner, Treasurer – Jan Harrison, Secretary – Carol Meyer. Librarian Jennifer Patterson presented her vision for this year’s Summer Reading, including programs for children, teens, and adults, as well as a comprehensive outreach strategy. This expanded Summer Reading program, unique to the Sherrills Ford-Terrell Branch Library, needs our financial support.

After May’s program (see following details), our business meeting will include voting on the Slate of Officers and on the financial support for our local Summer Reading programs. We will also focus on strategies for the 2016-2017 SFTFOL Membership

Campaign. Come help us design an awesome one – we’ve got some good ideas already!

Hope to see you on May 17, 6:30PM, for our program on The History of Camp Meetings, and for our important business agenda which follows.

See you soon,

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