We’ve had a number of people ask us why they did not receive a letter asking for donations this fall. The Caestecker Library Foundation decided that given the economic climate and the number of other local fundraising campaigns running that they would skip this year.
That’s not to say that the library doesn’t need or want donations – in fact the board of trustees is putting together a fundraising committee next month. We are always grateful for the time and treasure given by community members to keep this library a vibrant part of the greater Green Lake community. And if you wish to make a monetary donation to the library during this season of giving, we welcome you to do so. Checks to either the Friends or Foundation are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law, as each organization is a registered non-profit.
We’re hosting an artist’s reception on Monday, Dec. 19th from 4-5:45 p.m. for Michelle Smick, our December Artist of the Month. If you haven’t yet, please stop in to see her work. I am constantly impressed by the talented folks we have here in Green Lake. Michelle’s animal portraits are not to be missed.
