The Friends of the Florida Public Library (FPL) and the FPL Board of Trustees would like to thank everyone who helped make our 6th Annual Spring Tea fundraiser on Sat., Jun. 8 a success.
Caterer Kate Misciagna, of Katie Cooks, provided the savory and sweet treats and Janet Picarelli, of Janet’s Baked Goods, donated an array of desserts and the bread for Kate’s delicious tea sandwiches. Our thanks to Down2Earth for providing gluten-free delights.
Prizes and baskets for the drawing were donated by local businesses including Northern Bear Pet and Food Supplies, ShopRite of Chester, ShopRite of Warwick, Walden Savings Bank, and the Florida Chamber of Commerce. Diane Arcieri, Marie Arnstein, Shirley Coughlin, Ann Marie Kowalczyk, Anne Ossentjuk, JoAnn Schultz, Nancy and Bob Scott, and Rochelle Weiler donated individual baskets. Thanks also go to Jansen’s Nursery which loaned us beautiful ornamental trees in bloom for the décor.
We thank Madelyn Folino for providing a lovely array of spring flowers from her garden and the students from “Make A Difference” (MAD) of the Warwick Reformed Church who provided table service. Many thanks to Kelly Kilcoyne and Jared Verblaauw for their music and songs. And many thanks to Annette Shaughnessy and Meg Sgombick at the FPL and all of our committee members for all of their help.
Finally, to the lovely women, many sporting fanciful hats, who came out to support the Florida Public Library and enjoyed a wonderful and elegant afternoon, thank you.
