Coordinating with RCSC
Reviewing publicity and advertising
Exploring outreach efforts
Discussing Bookstore specials
Reviewing and updating procedures
Planning events for volunteers
Considering new ideas for committee work
February 9, 2023 Board Meeting
As you can tell, we are actively involved in governing, in the business of impacting the community, and realizing our mission: “To enhance the community through support for Sun City Libraries.” We invite you to join us, and expand your volunteer activities by being on the Board.
The Board meets at 10:00am, on the second Thursday of the month. Meetings are held either in the Bell Library meeting room, or on Zoom. Meetings are open to the Public.
If you'd like to be part of a fun and diverse group of library devotees, have a say in how we spend our money and represent the community, or if you have any questions, please use the form below to let us know. Jennie will get back to you.
Our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner took place on Wednesday, March 15th at Palmbrook Country Club. Kudos to Ruth Polansky for organizing the event, Jennie O'Leary for standing in for Sue Blechl who was unable to attend, and Irene Nathanson for helping with the registration table and checking people in.
With a nod to St. Patrick's day, a photo op area was set up and many took advantage of it.
Appreciation awards were given to Cathy Weyers for her many years of service on the Friends Board and for stepping up to be the Bookstore Manager, as well as ones given to Pam Danneman and to Sue Painter for their contributions.
The food was great and the company even greater. A big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers. Without you, we could not be as effective in the community as we are. We look forward to another successful year!
