Platt Thanks All For Successful Appeal & Event

The building committee’s recent annual appeal has been a great success. We thank all of you who generously make us a part of your annual giving and we are delighted that so many new folks have joined our list of supporters. In a recent meeting we set priorities for the upcoming year. They are to:

  1. identify and secure financial commitments from major donors in our area,
  2. explore all options for grant funding, and
  3. continue to host a variety of community events aimed at both fund raising and “fun-raising.”

Our most recent community event called “Broadway, Bubbles and Bon Bons” was held on Sunday, February 4. Guests were treated to a lovely afternoon of outstanding music performed by Broadway vocalist Bill Carmichael, and accompanied by pianist Chuck Miller and bassist Andy Smith. The concert of jazz and Broadway tunes held in the comfort and intimacy of the Shoreham Inn was made especially enjoyable by the abundance of chocolate desserts and bubbly Champagne. We’d like to extend special thanks not only to the musicians, but to Molly and Dominic, Chris Murphy, Shannon Bohler-Small and Champlain Chocolates who all helped to bringing this event to life.

Please help support the Platt Memorial Library’s expansion and renovation efforts by attending our bake sale to be held in conjunction with the annual book sale and our second annual plant sale, both to be held later this spring. Anyone interested in helping with the building project should stop by the library and talk with Renee or Brie.
