Garden Valley Library Has Birthday Party!

All the Irish lassies an' laddies gave the music their all.

Robbie Wilson, Anjali MacAngel, Rich Wilson, Doug Haines,
and piano accompanist, Jody Mabe.
The Garden Valley community celebrated the second anniversary of the new Garden Valley District Library on March 16, with a St. Patrick’s Day bash.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, the event included a silent auction fundraiser, with proceeds to go toward the completion of the library landscaping, including a rear patio.  

While guests perused and bid on auction items, the Irish music rolled. Vocalists Robbie Wilson, Richard Wilson and Angel were accompanied by pianist, Jody Mabe, and guitarist, Doug Haines. The chorus was composed of the willing and talented audience of patrons.

Young Wolverines, Hudson and Corban Fields,
show off their treasures.


The Friends were gratified to receive so many donations of wonderful themed gift baskets, works of art, and other offerings from private parties and businesses. Patrons coughed up $2,200 for the cause.

Lily and Buddy Madron, with grandma, Janet Zang, break to take
in the tasty noshes. People's Choice winner of the goodies went to
Robbie Wilson's scary green things, which brave souls declared to
be the best lemon bars ever!

Librarian, Diane Messick, actually
looks like she's having fun in
the mayhem!

Photographer, CJ Scharf, and Library Friends president, Jody Mabe,
are ready to write their checks.

  “It is a thank you we’ll be givin’”, say the Friends of the GV Library.
