Peter and Jenny at the Reception

This November 4th, I had the honor to sit with my brother Peter – the father of the bride – at Chelsea’s wedding reception.  To understand the real significance of that, here’s a little history.

My brother was diagnosed with ALS – also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease in September 2009, after a year of wondering what was going on with his speech.  He was having a difficult time formulating words, and at first, his speech resembled someone who had too much to drink.

A thank-you note to the library’s anonymous benefactor(s)

We are speechless with surprise and gratitude to have been the recipient over the past month of 83 new books. They were purchased from our Amazon wishlist and so represent books we were especially anxious to obtain for our collection.

Dear donor(s), even though you remain anonymous, please know that the board and library volunteers join me in thanking you for your generosity on behalf of our patrons who will receive so much pleasure from these books. We operate on a very small annual budget, and gifts such as these greatly expand our ability to offer new and enticing titles.

So, thank you. We’re dazzled.
