We had a wonderful evening at our 38th Annual Candlelight Dinner! Every year at this event we take time to thank our stellar group of library volunteers. We present the annual Volunteer Recognition Award and acknowledge volunteers who have reached special milestones. Please join us in extending a hearty thank you and congratulations to the individuals listed below!
Starting in November, we will be displaying oil paintings by Rob MacKenzie. Rob works alla prima in both plein air and studio, using oil on panels and canvas, and sketching in watercolor. His inspirations are the fresh, natural light of Corot’s field studies, Cezanne’s sense of solidity and place, and Van Gogh’s vibrant color. He admires the field studies of Clyde Aspevig and Tom Thomson. Largely self-trained while working as a surgeon and a hospital administrator, he has studied with Doug Braithwaite of Park City, Utah, Jeanne Mackenzie of Fort Collins, Colorado, and Terry Plater of Ithaca, New York.
There will be an Artists’s Reception at the library on Tuesday, November 12 at 7pm.
Everyone is invited to our 38th Annual Candlelight Dinner and Membership Meeting, which will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Ulysses Chapel on Saturday, November 2nd at 6:00 PM.
Reservations are required as seating is limited- Sign up at the front desk or call the library! Admission by your favorite culinary concoction, and BYOB. We will be thanking our volunteers and voting in new trustees. This year we will have live music by Xander Dawson, art by Rob MaKenzie, and a literary quiz by Chris Wofford.
Tuesdays October 22, 29, and November 5.
