Thank you Tables of Content participants

Nov 21, 2019

To the Editor: 

Nearly 60 Marion area residents recently gathered for the Elizabeth Taber Library’s second annual Tables of Content fundraiser. Lively discussions of the book selection were a major contributor to each dinner’s success. Comments on the event ranged from “This was the best fundraiser I’ve ever attended” to “It was stellar in all respects – congenial company, delicious food, enjoyable conversation and a stimulating discussion.”

Several of last year’s guests stepped up and volunteered to host dinners this year.

Our appreciation to the dinner hosts and book facilitators cannot be underestimated: Margie Baldwin and Merry Conway; Alan and Jessica Harris; Robin Worcester and Trudy Kingery; Nan Johnson and Margaret Nash; Susan Mead and Kathy Reed; Linda Scheussler and Susannah Davis; Sally Fallon, Sheila Converse and Deb Ewing.  Special thanks are extended to Kinlin Grover Real Estate, the event sponsor, and to Melissa Gordon of Milton’s Distributing.

All funds raised will go to the library’s programming and technology efforts. The Board continues to supplement the Town’s library budget which covers only “bricks and mortar” expenses: building maintenance and operation, salaries and basic supplies.

The additional 30% of the library’s budget is funded by individual and corporate supporters, the summer Book Sale, and other fundraising events such as Tables of Content.

The Library Board intends to make this fundraiser an annual event. To host a dinner or work on the Tables of Content Committee to promote the next event, contact Liz Sherry at the library or Marthe Soden at 508-748-1277.
