The Friends of the Library hosted their annual fundraising Dinner for the BUPL (Bonnechere Union Public Library) on April 27 2013. This year’s theme was “Under the Sea”
This is the first time we were asked to participate and the evening was really fun! The Legion was transformed in to an under water oasis and looked fantastic. Some of the attendees wore costumes and the decorations which was the work of a team of helpers were really AMAZING!
The Greek God Poseidon who was portrayed by Chris Hinsperger owner of the Bonnechere Caves made and appearance and presided over the evening…(Great Job Chris!)
George from Frisco’s was on hand serving freshly sautéed shrimp along with a selection of dishes and salads that were made by the Friend of the Library Volunteers. It was obvious the food was enjoyed by all!
Bonnechere Valley Township Mayor Jennifer Murphy (whose costume was an adorable tiara with the letter “C” …get it?) presented Judy Sauvé with a volunteer award for all her hard work with the many local organizations she is proud to be part of. Judy accepted the award to a standing ovation! Now that is Valley Pride!
The evening entertainment was provided by The Red Shoes.
There were games to entertain guests with prizes, and a silent auction. We enjoyed ourselves and so did everyone we spoke with. If you have not attended the annual dinner before we recommend you plan on attending next year. It is not only a fun evening it is really a great cause to support our local library
I know we can’t wait to see the decorations next year, we are told they get better every year.
