The event will begin with a meet and greet social. They will have balloons and small giveaway items for kids. Finger foods, desserts, and light beverages will be available for everyone to enjoy. The program will begin with presentations highlighting the history and contributions of the community of organizations that share the Goodwin Library building and end with a tribute to Beulah Thayer, honoring her years of support for the Library and the Town of Farmington. Following the presentations, there will be a performance by Rochester Poet Laureate, Pat O’Brien, singer, songwriter, and storyteller.
Then, the celebration will adjourn at the Recreation Center and move to an Open House at the Goodwin Library. The children’s room will be renamed and dedicated to Beulah Thayer in a short ceremony. Also, representatives from each of our library community organizations will be present in their respective spaces in the Goodwin Library to give interested parties a tour, or answer any questions about their organizations.
The Henry Wilson Museum will be open to the public from 2:00 - 4:00 today. Come join us!
