 Friends 2016 Picnic
About 35 Friends of the Library gathered for a delightful picnic, held annually, on Sept. 26 in the Library’s courtyard – weather was great.  Outstanding hamburgers and hotdogs, expertly grilled by Gerry Dion, were supplemented by an array of appetizers, salads and desserts supplied by those attending. This was a delightful event quarterbacked by many of the Friends’ friends.
