The Sodus Chamber of Commerce has announced its Citizen of the Year, and it's our own Pauline Dodge! A lifelong Sodus resident and long-time Sodus Free Library clerk, Pauline is an active member of the Sodus Garden Club, the Council of Churches, Eastern Star, Sodus Rural Cemetery Board, and the Sodus Presbyterian Church. This year's award banquet will be held on April 4th at the Sodus Bay Heights Restaurant; if you'd like to attend, stop by the Library and speak to Christina Russell.

Congratulations, Pauline, on this well deserved honor!

Our Friends of the Sodus Free Library made $496.90 at their Chocolate Sale! Valentine "hugs and kisses" to Shirley Patchett for chairing the event, and to all the Friends and contributors who helped make this event such a great (and tasty) success. We love our Friends!

If you think you might like to join this group, their next meeting will be this Tuesday at 4 p.m. I hope to see you there!
