---- — Dear Editor:
The board, staff, and fundraising committee of the Rushville Public Library wish to thank the many wonderful people who helped make our recent fund-raising event, “Love Your Library Rendezvous”, a great success. More than 35 individuals, organizations and businesses donated money, time or auction items.
With the help of the Rushville Elks, we hosted about 75 people who enjoyed the evening of delicious food and drink, music by Mike Woods, and a silent auction full of awesome prizes. Library board member Keith Perin donated his time and talent to MC the event.
We could not have had such a successful evening without the corporate sponsorship of Trane Company and Emerson Climate Technologies. Exhaust Plus, Newhouse & Newhouse, and Joyce Prifogle donated additional funding for the event. Along with these sponsorships of this first-time fund-raiser, sales of event tickets and the silent auction helped us net more than $2,300 for the library.
The Rushville Public Library Fund-Raising Committee hopes to make the “Love Your Library Rendezvous” an annual event to raise funds for and awareness of our facility which is in need of restoration and expansion.
Thanks again to all who support our Rushville Public Library and to all who participated in our “Love Your Library Rendezvous.”
Sue Otte, Director
