Wine Tasting Fundraiser
The Friends of the Salisbury Public Library hosted a Wine Tasting party on Friday, November 14, 2014, from 6 - 8 p.m. at the temporary library site. Tickets for this fun event were sold for $25.00 each to raise funds for the library. A total of just over $2,500 was raised from ticket sales and donations.
In addition to the wine tasting, there was a silent auction of several paintings by board chair Jeannette Lazarus, as well as the drawing for her original 18 X 18 oil painting. The winner of the drawing was Dianne Masiello.
"Thank you all so very much for participating in this fundraising venture! The painting and silent auction of book paintings raised well over three thousand dollars for the Building Fund of the Salisbury Public Library! It was great fun and quite an adventure. I am sincerely grateful for your enthusiasm and generosity."

The puzzle itself will be reassembled and hung in our new library as a reminder of how important a part fundraising plays in the life of the library.
