Garden Valley Library Friends Seek Donations for St. Paddy's Auction

   The Garden Valley Library has been in its new location for two years, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a second blow-out St. Patrick’s Day Anniversary Party.
  They have accomplished several milestones this last year, but there are still goals to be reached.  The objective for this year is to complete the landscaping, including the Children’s Garden and patio/picnic area. As a fundraiser for this, the Friends of the Library will sponsor a “Silent Auction” at the St. Paddy’s Day Party. 
   Christy Jauregui, secretary for the Friends, says, “We are asking local merchants and business people, as well as other folks, for donations to be auctioned off at this event. Are you an Artist?  Service provider? Crafter? Could you help participate in this community effort? Your donation would be most graciously accepted, and remember, it will also be a tax deduction for you as a charitable donation.”
  The party will be held on Saturday, March 16, at the library, with bidding beginning at 1:00 p.m. The party and entertainment begin at 3:00.  There will be live music, singing, refreshments, and an opportunity to bid on some wonderful items on auction.
  If you would like more information regarding making a donation, please call Kathy Passie, 462-8092; Christy Jauregui, 462-2437; Richard Wilson, 462-2250; or the Garden Valley Library, 462-3317.
   Judging by the rave reviews that this event drew last year, it will be something you don’t want to miss--so circle your calendar for Saturday, March 16 at 3:00 p.m., wear your Green and come celebrate the second anniversary of the Garden Valley Library!
