With Gratitude

 The Black, White & Read All Over Gala is now a happy memory.  I am very grateful to all of the volunteers who made this night so special.  Like my dress, you sparkled!

Most importantly, we wouldn’t have a Gala if no one gave and no one came.

I am very grateful to live in Needham – the Needham businesses supported the LFN so strongly through sponsorships (major sponsors – Friends, Roche Brothers, Needham Bank) and our unfaltering sponsors who have been behind every gala we have done – Louise Condon, Walter Collins at Briarwood, The Women’s Club and the Exchange Club.)  In addition our silent and live auctions are possible because of their gifts as well as those of the Needham businesses.  Please look closely at the auction item sheets and notice the donors.  Please thank them for their contribution to the 2012 Black, White & Read All Over Gala.

Just one more thing to add – SHOP NEEDHAM!

 And to those who came to the Gala on Friday, thank you for coming and registering your confirmation of the work we do. We are truly grateful for your attendance and support of the Needham Library.  Every donation brings us closer to the one million dollar goal we have established for our permanent fund, so that future generations of library patrons will also love the library.
