Celebration Update

This year’s Celebration is right around the corner. If you haven’t marked you calendar already, it’s September 22, from noon to 2 p.m. at the library. Join us while we “Celebrate the People of the Adirondacks.” Tickets are $30 per person and are due by September 13. Please submit this reservation form with payment.

Gracious donors have made a wonderful basket raffle possible again this year. The raffle baskets are on display in the library. Tickets can be purchased for $1 each or six for $5. This year there are two megabaskets, valued at more than $800 each. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20. Winners will be drawn at the Celebration, but you need not be present to win.

Our auction will truly celebrate the wonderful people hailing from and living in our area. We will feature returning favorites and new standouts—a restaurant package; artwork; glass work; fabric pieces; and entertainment and home décor offerings and services. And we will be auctioning a signed copy of Gloversville native, Joseph E. Persico’s latest book, Roosevelt’s Centurions: FDR and the Commanders He Led to Victory in World War II.

The event will be catered by the Union Hall Inn. There will be food stations serving sweet and savory small bites. Limited first‐floor seating will be available—plenty of seating upstairs. Admission is $30. Reservations may be made in the library.
