Save the Date:  Backyard Bash at Webster Park, Tuesday June 14, 5:30-7

Our annual “Backyard Bash” will take place in Webster park this year as construction of the new Village Green will be underway at the library very soon.  We’ll have Kiwanis  grilling hot dogs, the Friends of the OPL selling watermelon,  lemondade and baked goods, and music by Miss Julie Monroe and friends to help kick off summer.  If you’d be interested in volunteering to bake or help the Friends at this fun event, please contact new Friends president, Leslee Noyes at [log in to unmask].


Have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend!
