To the Editor:
The Ivoryton Library and Friends of the Essex Library sponsored the first and now annual, joint fundraiser on Thursday, July 9th at the Ivoryton Playhouse. Thank you to those who attended the event and those who baked cookies for the “Meet the Cast” party following the “South Pacific” performance. This would not have been possible without the generous support of the Ivoryton Playhouse and of Krista May, Managing Director of the Playhouse, who provided untiring assistance. For all, we are particularly grateful.
Our libraries serve as community centers. We strive to provide a variety of programs, services and events that enrich both our intellectual and entertainment experiences. It was a thrill for us who were involved in organizing this event to receive such a positive response.
Richard Conroy and Elizabeth Alvord
