Fun at the Friends’ First Quarter Auction May 18, 2013

leave a comment »


Last night’s Friends of the Lantana Public Library’s first Quarter Auction at the Lantana Recreation Center was a great success, with plenty of laughter, food, prizes, bids, bargain purchases, and donations. Mayor Dave Stewart started the Auction and Friends President Teresa Wilhelm presided as Auctioneer, with assistance. Library Director Sid Patchett was also in attendance.

*Table raffles and bids for luxury items were priced at no more than a dollar — yeahh!
*Local businesses garnered new customers — awesome!
*The Friends and the Library received renewed support — cool!
*Friends, family, and associates reconnected — nice!

Doors opened at 6pm sharp. After paying the modest admission fee, the public stopped by vendor tables and displays to view, purchase, and enter raffles for wares or merchandise. The latter included designer handbags, jewellry, clothes, shoes, delicious snacks, cookware and gourmet foods, thermal lunch totes, spa items, glassbottle creations and lighting, natural/handmade scented candles, as well as healthy teas, coffees, and luxury cosmetics.

Thanks to the vendors and volunteers who came out last night — their names will be listed as they become available. Also, of course, a warm thanks to our supporting public. The biggest cheer goes to Teresa Wilhelm for organizing the Auction. Another will take place in July — mark your social calendar. Be sure to bring your $, family, and friends!

2011 Holiday Concert Update

leave a comment »

Hi everyone.  The Annual Holiday Concert held here at the Library on Thurs. Dec. 15th, 2011, was enjoyed by everyone.

The concert commenced at 8pm, with Teresa Wilhelm, Friends Director and Mistress of Ceremonies, welcoming guests.  The Symphonic Band of the Palm Beach’s Woodwind Ensemble performing several pieces, ranging from classical to latino. (I liked the latino piece, with a tango beat.)

Ms. Dorothy Richter, master puppeteer and long-standing member of our community, delivered a wonderful speech with wise and humorous advice for all. (This year, her focus was on Genesis, Chapter 6 — Noah, the Ark, and the Flood.)

Mike Bayer and his colleagues of the Brass Ensemble then treated the audience to several arrangements, concluding with a medley of carols and audience members joining in the singing.

The food and refreshments were delicious and more than ample.  Thanks to the musicians and especially to Teresa Wilhelm for her organization and coordination of this event.
