Hello fellow patrons of the Pine River Public Library.
February isn’t just for Valentine’s Day anymore.
Our library has several events in this month of hearts and flowers. It is, it happens, also a month of wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres. On February 10th Friends of the Pine River Library are sponsoring a Wine and Beer Tasting featuring wines from around the world. These will be provided by Quality Wine and Spirits. Our own Friends will be preparing the Hors d’oeuvres. There will also be a silent auction. This wonderful event will take place Friday, 2/10/2012 from 6pm to 8pm at the VFW Post in Jenkins. Tickets are available at Pine River Library in advance for a mere $15 or $20 at the door. Friends of the Library receive $2.00 off. Being a friend has benefits! The proceeds from this event will help pay for the roof over my head - the one at the library.
Think of this as a preamble to Valentines Day. Bring your sweetheart or your favorite neighbor or anybody remotely close to you who likes a little something to drink from time to time and needs to get out of the house…Don’t drink? There is food and the silent auction to consider. Something for everyone except for me. I will be left behind to guard the library against miscreants. I really don’t mind at all. Just save some food for me.
