Dinner and cakewalk will raise funds for Berne library

To the Editor:

The Friends of the Berne Library will be having a Lasagna Dinner and Cakewalk on Saturday, Oct. 3, at the Hilltowns Senior Center at 1360 Helderberg Trail in Berne.  Several varieties of homemade lasagna will be available:  meat, vegetarian, and gluten-free.  Salad, bread, beverages, and make-your-own sundaes will round out the meal.

The Friends will begin serving at 5:30 p.m.  Tickets are $10 prepaid and $12 at the door.  There is a family maximum price of $50.  Tickets may be purchased at the Berne Public Library or call 872-1246 for more information.

As in previous years, a special feature at the dinner is the cakewalk.  Tickets may be purchased for a drawing to win a delicious cake made from scratch.

Proceeds will be used to support a literacy project that Dr. Kristin Mack, Berne physician, is starting, called “Roots of Reading: Healthy Minds and Bodies.”  A new or used book will be given at every well-child visit with Dr. Mack.

Proceeds will also provide matching funds for an Upper Hudson Library System Construction Grant so that energy-efficient windows can be installed in the library and also to clean and re-point the outside brickwork of the library.

Hope to see you Oct. 3. Bon appétit!

Donna Gwin, president

Friends of the Berne Library
