CHESTERTOWN - The Friends of the Chester Library will be holding its fourth annual Wine Tasting & Silent Auction May 15, and reservations to attend the event are due by May 3. To be held at the Friends Lake Inn from 1 to 4 p.m., the event features Friends Lake Inn's award-winning wine list and hospitality. Also, the event is considered a premier social event in the North Country.
Friends of the Library officials expressed appreciation this week for the generosity of John and Trudy Phillips of Friends Lake Inn plus the many local merchants and artisans who donate items for the auction. Through these donations, the Friends group has been able to provide equipment and materials for the library. From the proceeds of this fundraiser, the group has provided money for new computers, book shelves, window shades, and many new books and videos for the library.
Reservations for the event are $25 and can be made at the library or by mailing a check payable to the Friends of the Chester Library, P.O. Box 451, Chestertown, NY 12817. For details, call the library at 494-5384.
