I am delighted to be the new President of the FOL Board of Directors. It will be an honor to work with the fourteen other FOL Board members on the many outstanding events and projects planned for the 2016-2017 year.
But before we go there, I would like to thank our past FOL President, Carol Johnson, who has done an amazing job as president of the Friends. If we had our way, she would still be president but the FOL By-Laws limit terms and that time has passed.
To express the FOL Board’s gratitude, we presented Carol with a gift of appreciation at the May FOL Annual Meeting. It was a framed historic Ormond photo of her choice. Thank you, Carol, for all you have done to lead the Friends these past four years.
As we look to the coming year, we are excited to have many outstanding programs scheduled beginning in October. Joanie Kruger, the FOL Program Chair, has performers and authors scheduled throughout the year. You will want to place the dates on your calendars as we publish them in the FOL Newsletters.
In addition to the daily great savings that the Book Sale Room offers, our FOL Book Sale Chair, Shirley Johnston, offers quarterly Book Sales in the Book Sale Room area (BuyOne-GetOne...just like Publix). This is a great fundraiser for the Friends. So come and buy some of your favorite books, CDs, magazines and videos at a very low cost.
Just in case you don’t know…all monies earned by the Friends from the daily Book Sale Room sales, the quarterly BOGO Book Sales and FOL memberships are totally used to support and fund the many projects and needs of our Ormond Beach Library.
As a Friend, we ask you to participate in these many events and to support our FOL efforts.
