Thank you Friends, for sponsoring the library and Friends at the Maryville College Nonprofit Fair March 3 from 12 -5
Many non-profit organizations gathered in the Alumni gym of Maryville College for the first ever Nonprofit Fair.
Each group was provided a table with black tablecloth and chairs. Many brought banners and three sided picture boards. All brought an enthusiastic message which resonated with the students, faculty, and public who attended.
The Library was represented by Beca Baker who found several students interested in assisting her in historical archiving, communication, and graphic designs. Dick Burgess, BCFOL Membership Chairperson, and Jane Bennett, Friends PR Representative, were delighted to find several students interested in graphic design, assisting in PR, and with the Friends in general. They also met many other nonprofit representatives and shared the Friends mission, some of whom were interested in joining the Friends.
Among the nonprofits represented included the League of Women voters Adult Education of Blount County, Special Growers, The Gate, Wesley Woods, Lee University Graduate programs, United Way of Blount County, Alzheimers Support of Blount County, and many more.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
To all the volunteers who came out, gave of their time and helped with the Make-Up Book Sale on February 27th. Thanks to you, the one day sale made almost $4500! Well done!
