Lane Library Friends, Hampton Rotary to host 50th Anniversary Gala and Wine Tasting

The Friends of Lane Library, in association with the Rotary Club of Hampton, present an event of fun and food in celebration of the Friends' 50th Anniversary.

Scheduled for Saturday, November 8, 7:30 p.m. at the library, the semi-formal event will feature a wine tasting, silent auction, musical entertainment, hors d'oeuvres and desserts, and door prizes. A limited number of tickets are available now to purchase at the Lane Library. Individual tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door the evening of the event.

"The Lane Library is one of our town's most valuable resources and the Friends have been active supporters for fifty years," comments Sue Hughes, President of the Lane Library Friends. "We are pleased to team up with the Hampton Rotary and members of the greater Hampton community to celebrate our Golden Anniversary."

"We've had fabulous support from area individuals and businesses and look forward to more community involvement as plans continue to unfold," comments Friends Vice-President Debra Perry who is chairing the gala celebration. "E. & J. Gallo Winery will be providing the wines, along with a staff of knowledgeable servers. Shaws, Hutchinson's Candy and Hannaford are donating refreshments. The Silent Auction will feature original pieces from area artists as well as gift baskets, gift cards and other special items from a number of local businesses including the Galley Hatch, Bayberry Gifts, Present Perfect, Timberland, Crate and Barrel, Dunkin' Donuts, Newbury North Salon, and Diane Gordon and Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. It should be a fun and festive evening for all and a worthy celebration of the work the Friends have done, and continue to do, for the benefit of the Lane Library."
