    WFFOL Sale

    -Special to the Observer from Patty Baker- Thank you to all of you who donated items, volunteered your precious time, or came to our sale and shopped with such generosity.  We made $2,400.00!  Incredible!   We had some very generous donations both of items and checks and are so thrilled to have this nice chunk of money to put towards Library Hall. Many of you said that because of the weather you weren’t able to get your items to us for our sale so we are going to have another one in April.  We are going to combine it with a bedding plant sale that the Master Gardener’s are planning.  So, as you are doing your spring cleaning, set aside those wonderful things that you need a new home for and we will sell them to benefit the Library Hall.
