We're Celebrating!

What an amazing sale our Friends group had - they brought in $1,959.50 at last week's used book sale! While there are still a couple of bills that need to be paid, for advertising, etc., this totally smashed all previous records. Thanks to Book Sale Chairman Shirley Patchett, Friends President Lynn Griffith, and all those who worked so hard. Thanks, also, to all of you who came in and shopped. As I always say, we *love* our Friends!
