A THANK YOU FROM THE FRIENDS OF THE BRIDGEWATER PUBLIC LIBRARY



On Tuesday, August 12, 2008, the Friends of the Bridgewater Public Library held a wine tasting fundraiser at The Wine Palace. Over 200 supporters of the library attended or donated to the fundraiser.


Attendees sampled wine served by Donovan, Shelley and others at The Wine Palace in West Bridgewater and tasted food presented by Friends board members and library trustees.


A big thank you goes out to everyone who donated time, product and services to the fundraiser, especially The Wine Palace in West Bridgewater for hosting the event and serving the wine. Charles River Wine Company and Trio Wine Company also served the guests. Peterson Farm in Bridgewater and Shy Brothers Farm in Westport helped with food products.


And thank you to Cassia from Norton who helped obtain some of the titles from Bookmooch.com, Stephanie Guarino, and Friends of the Bridgewater Public Library for the door prizes.


We would also like to thank all of our advertisers including Around the Common, Bridgewater Cable, Bridgewater Independent, Citizens for a Better Bridgewater, The Brockton Enterprise, the Free Bird Times, Joe Gillis Jr., Taunton Gazette and the Town of Bridgewater website.


If you missed the event or were not able to attend, please look for upcoming events to support the library. This event and others like it, including Pizza Fest, the membership drive, and the book sales will help the Friends of the Bridgewater Public Library continue their work in assisting the library during difficult budgetary times.
