To the Editor,

On behalf of the Friends of the Pettee Memorial Library in Wilmington, I would like to thank everyone who participated in our recent fundraising raffle at the Wilmington Town Meeting on March 5. Your generosity was most appreciated for our first event to raise funds for library programs.

Congratulations to our winners: Patty Murphy won the adult books basket; Bruce Cole won the children’s books basket; and John Lazelle won the Vermont breakfast basket. We would especially like to thank Bartleby’s Books for their assistance, and local authors Franklin Reeve and Laura Stevenson, who donated their books.

We would also like to invite everyone to attend our next function, in conjunction with the Memorial Hall Board, on Saturday, March 16, at Memorial Hall. Starting at 5 pm, local author Vince Feeney will give a presentation on the Irish “Wave” in the Green Mountains. This will be followed by light Irish refreshments for sale, and then a dance presentation by the McFadden Academy of Irish Dance at 7 pm. We hope you will come out to support these two worthwhile groups and have a very enjoyable prelude to your St. Patick’s Day celebrations. The Friends welcome anyone interested in helping; we meet the first Monday of each month at 4 pm at Pettee Library.


Carol DeBarba

Secretary, Friends of the Pettee Memorial Library
