I want to send a Bravo out to all of the people who are working tirelessly in my hometown of Gloversville, NY to raise money to renovate our 100 year old Carnegie library - where I still work part time. Noted author Richard Russo is from Gloversville and is the honorary chairman of our Capital Campaign. It takes an extraordinary amount of manpower and grit to undertake such a fundraiser. The story of our library and its quest was featured recently in the New York Times. (You can check out the link here) My husband - who serves on the Board of Directors of our local Little League organization - received a call from a former resident who saw the Times article on the library and decided to make a donation............to the Gloversville Little League......that made us all smile.....the ripple effect!
That fabulous Jen Timko has designed a wonderful sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches - it is open to endless interpretations! Hope we see yours in the gallery!
