Giving campaign donors
The Youngsville Public Library Board and Friends members would like to thank the following individuals for their monetary contributions to the on-going 2010 Giving Campaign (names as of April 23). The generosity and support of our community library by the following donors is sincerely appreciated.
This tax-deductible fundraiser will continue through Memorial Day. However to ensure that the much utilized services of your community library are maintained, all donations are greatly appreciated throughout the year. Giving Campaign forms are available in the April Steppin-Out, April 5th Guide, and at the Library.

Fred Lawrenson, second from the right, is giving a gallery talk during the Friday opening for his show of Nature and Wildlife paintings at the Allegheny Artistry gallery. His talk covered what inspires him, how and where he does research, his “extreme realism” style, and the underlying abstract design of his compositions. This kind of interaction between viewers and the artist increases the understanding and appreciation of the artist’s work. You can see Lawrenson’s work at the Local Artist’s Co-Op/ Allegheny Artistry gallery through May 23. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sat. 11-5:30.

Residents are encouraged to stop in, sift through the memorabilia, and take a stroll down memory-lane.
