At the Library

The Longest Table Fundraiser Event

was wonderful!

Please take a look at the October Newsletter for a collage of the event with many faces you might recognize of people who attended.

Two of the tables included costumes to support the theme:

Our director, Marsha Watson, with Alice in Wonderland



Participants at the Madeline in Paris table were very “Parisian” with their veiled hats .

Participants “dressed” their tables with a children’s book theme. Here are images of many of the tables. If every table isn’t shown, it’s because the picture didn’t come out, so you can blame the photographer … me!

This was the “before” state of the tables …



This was the “Harold and the Purple Crayon” table on the left

and “Jack and the Beanstalk” table on the right.

We also had “Harry Potter” on the left, complete with sorting hat, and


“Jane and Jenny on the Farm” with  farm animals and a silo with flowers.

We had “Madeline in Paris,” complete with Eifel Tower and parisiennes.

And we had Flat Stanley in the form of Flat Mady.

And we had “Alice in Wonderland” fully decked out and


“Dumbo,” who made his presence known, and

table-dumbotable-chickaboom and “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom,” unless I’m wrong about this.



and “Dr Seuss’s One fish two fish red fish blue fish” on the left

and such a good time was had by all, that many asked,

“Are we going to do this next year?” I think the answer is YES!
