Thank-You for Library Bake Sale Success Many thanks to those of you who have contributed in some way for the Friends of the Library Jubilee Book and Bake Sale. So many people donated goodies to be sold, made calls to solicit those goodies, gave money and time to work at the bake sale on Friday and Saturday plus those who bought the goodies. Another thanks to Golden’s Furniture for providing a freezer for the event. I appreciate the community’s support for our library. Thanks a million! Beverly Davis Bake Sale Chairman
