Members of the Kishwaukee Rotary Club volunteered at the Kirkland Public Library's fundraising event in Franklin Township Park this week. We hope the library met its goals! It was a great evening with perfect weather, an awesome band, amazing food and friendly people! (pictured are club president Norman Walzer, Tonda Bruch, Becky Ryan and David Dosier).
Below is the 'thank you' message posted by the Kirkland Library on their Facebook site:
Thank you to all who supported the Friends of the Kirkland Public Library last night at our event in Franklin Township Park.
We appreciate all who bought meal tickets, Denny and Deb Rehn who donated the pulled pork sandwiches, Kishwaukee Sunrise Rotary Club and Resource Bank who helped us run meals for those who chose drive thru pick up and Weston Bramm who helped us with whatever we needed at the park.
A special thanks to Red Horse who entertained us for three hours with great music courtesy of a grant from the Mary E. Stevens Trust. This band was terrific!
Congratulations to Jen Block and Splendora Salon who was named Business of the Year and Lori Finkle who was named Citizen of the Year by the Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce.
In the past we had our salad luncheon, but hopefully we can make this "party in the park" a yearly event. Hope you had a great time!
