Happy New Year to Friends!
It may be cold outside, but inside the library the Friends of Fitchburg Library are warming up some plans for another terrific year in support of our library.
2016 brings some transitions among our board members as we bid a fond farewell to President, Alice Jenson, and Board Directors Maggie Wysocki and Nicki Troia. We wish them all the best and thank them for their many contributions and years of service to Friends. While we’ll miss Maggie who has moved to a new community, we are pleased that Alice and Nicki will remain nearby and continue volunteering for Friends. We would also like to thank Ann Koski for her excellent guidance as Vice-President. She will continue serving as a Board Director.
This month three new Directors have joined the board. Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Ken Axe, Dianne Reynolds and Matt Pulda. We look forward to introducing them to all of you and working with them in the coming months.
In addition to our new board members the Friends of Fitchburg Library board has two new officers. Mary Power is our new President. She has served on the board for the past three years and has brought great ideas and vitality to Friend’s projects such as the concepts of the Books and Brews event and BookStart. Joining her will be Vice-President Ali Bram. Ali has been a board member for two years and has handled most of the promotional graphics and PR for Friends. Ann Scott, Secretary and Karen Grimmer, Treasurer will continue offering their able service to the board.
A complete list of board members follows this report. You may contact us through the Friend’s email address at: email@example.com, leave a voice mail message at (608) 729 – 1788, or write to Friends of Fitchburg Library, Inc., 5530 Lacy Road, Fitchburg, WI 53711.
