A Special Thank You to Volunteers

The Library expressed its appreciation to its many volunteers with the first Volunteer Recognition Luncheon on Thursday, September 22 at the Dansville Methodist Church Community Hall. The event was organized by Gay Frame, former library board trustee, Mary Ann Holden, currently secretary of the library Board, and library clerk, Marcia Miller.

Addressing the nearly 50 people present, Board president David Reinholtz stated, "A small town library depends on its volunteers. We have an excellent staff, but it’s the work of the volunteers that strengthen our programs and events. This is our special thank you to all of you for your support."

Senator Catharine Young was present for the luncheon, presenting a special recognition award to Carol Welcher for 10 years of volunteer work at the library’s main desk. In turn, the library presented a certificate of appreciation to Senator Young for acquiring a grant of $50,000 earlier in the year for the library’s expansion project.

Trustee Holden spent a few moments updating the volunteers on the progress with the building expansion. Purchase of the neighboring Wilcox property will take place at the end of the year.

The library plans to make the Volunteer Luncheon an annual event.
