Greetings From The President


Dear Friends: 

Our August 3 Ice Cream Party at the conclusion of the library’s Summer Learning Program was extremely well attended this year. Many thanks to the Friends volunteers who contributed their time and resources to this popular (and tasty!) event. 

The weeks since have literally and figuratively melted away, and here we are at the start of September! Although the daytime temperatures still say “dog days of summer”, there are many indications that a new season is upon us: School buses are on the roads again; Labor Day festivities have come and gone; and the light in the evening sky before sunset has that certain glow that instinctively tells us autumn is here. We may be a little sad to see summer go, and at the same time, we look forward to the fresh start and cooler temperatures that Fall offers us. 

Speaking of a fresh start, be sure to check out the line-up of FOSFTL programs on the docket for the 2018/19 year (See p. 4-5) and mark your calendars accordingly. Our Program committee has done a wonderful job of pulling together a diverse set of informative and enriching programs, and we hope everyone will find something of interest among them. Plan to join us on Wednesday, September 19 for our opening business meeting to hear about the many activities underway, learn about different ways to get involved, and contribute to the discussion around important and timely topics. The October 8 Meet-the-Candidates open house at Rehobeth church is a great way to meet and chat with those running for local offices in November. Check out programs, projects, and activities in this year’s first edition of the Friendly News. 

I look forward to seeing many of you at these upcoming events!
