There’s still time to show you love your library

To the Editor:

As the date of the annual I Love my Library Gala approaches, I am pleased to be able to offer a look at some of the offerings of the evening up for silent auction and live auction. 

On the silent auction tables, there will be a wide variety of items that will appeal to many.  Among new items this year are a cooking class for two, four hours of studio time at a pottery store, a greeting card “shop in a box,” and even 25 bales of hay to take care of your animal friends.  Returning favorites are dining opportunities, rounds of golf, car-care and tool items, health-care items, jewelry, and art work.

There will be several themed baskets from wine, to “A Day in Schoharie,” “Foodies’ Delight,” and “Relax and Renew.”  We’ll also have the popular “Surprise” box.

Our live auction will feature a Goodyear tires certificate valued at $400, a week’s stay in Chicago valued at $1,500, and a special one-of-a-kind art piece that is priceless.

If you’d like to donate an item yourself to add to the fun, you may contact me at 861-7298 or call the library.

There is still time to make reservations for the dinner and gala, which will be held at the village hall on Saturday, Feb. 8. Doors will open at 5 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres and silent auction opportunities followed by dinner and the live auction. Cost is $50 per person.  Reservations may be made by calling Pat Spohr at 861-6939.
