A very successful Arts and Artisans Fair this past Saturday. The weather was perfect, the crowds were large and the vendors were happy. The kitchen was run by Peg Mason and did very well as did the Used Book Sale. The Fair benefits the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library and is the library's largest fundraiser. A big thank you to the army of helpers who make this event an annual success!
It was clear that the town was hungry on Saturday as the Barbeque Chicken Dinner sponsored by the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department sold over 680 dinners. The money raised from the dinner goes directly to the purchase of the Department's new fire truck. Two big successful fundraisers on one day in Lovell. As with the Arts and Artisans Fair, the chicken dinner could not take place without the enthusiastic help of many volunteers.
Don't forget that Carol Foord from the Tin Mountain Conservation Center will be portraying Molly Ockett at 7 pm on Tuesday, August 31, at 7 pm. Ms. Foord will show that the American Indians were here first and that this native culture is still important today. At the Library with refreshments to follow the presentation.
