The Friends of the North Grenville Public Library participated in their 19th OPP BBQ on Thursday, August 8, thanks to the benevolence of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry. The new location, adjacent to the Municipal Centre, has ample parking and more elbow room.
Our sincere appreciation is extended, first, to Constable Annie Collins, OPP; secondly, to Hulse, Playfair and McGarry for their sponsorship and BBQ-ing expertise; and, lastly, to the hundreds of citizens who faithfully appear every Thursday during the summer. Youngsters of Yore were well represented along with Friends.
Constable Collins was elated to announce that $851 was raised as a result of the BBQ. The funds will go to support Library programs.
Let’s be proud of the Norenberg Library. It is our jewel in the crown – led by our very special Librarian, Rachel Brown, and her competent staff.
