The Friends volunteered at the Free Market
sponsored by the Westfield Green Team on
Saturday, September 26. We did what we do best,
managing the book donation portion of the event.
Countless books were donated by
community members. We sorted out the moldy
and unreadable books, organized the books into
children and adult sections and helped people find
books during the Pick Up portion of the event.
(Book sale volunteers, sound familiar?)
The best part was all of the books were
FREE. So many people were thrilled with the
wonderful selection and volume of books they took
home. One of the best parts of the event, Green
Drop took away all of the leftover books.
Participating in the community event was a
great opportunity to meet book lovers in town. Be
assured we handed out a bunch of Friends
brochures. Many thanks to our volunteers that day:
Carol and Jerry Skotnicki, Anita Meyer, Cindy
Colicchio, Christine Mason, Joan Sanborn, Lori
Wendler, Suzanne O’Rourke, Mary Ellen O’Boyle,
Paul Sanderson and Barbara Uhr.
