The Friends of the Fruitville Library saluted the invaluable contributions of its volunteers on February 6. A total of 67 volunteers and library staff Founders Club.
Kittie Chapman and Kathy Blanchard created table centerpieces of orchids and bamboo that set an Asian atmosphere for the festivities. Founders’ Chef Marco presented a beautiful Asian-fusion banquet topped off with coconut ice cream and banana wontons.
Both year-round and seasonal members of the Friends volunteer to support the library. Volunteers offer many different talents: helping behind the scene in the bookstore shop as well as staffing the sales desk, sorting and restocking shelves in the library itself, helping with clerical tasks, and serving on the Board of Directors of the Friends. Friendship and a sense of accomplishment are only a part of the rewards of being a volunteer.
