 The Friends celebrated their Annual Member Luncheon at Lucasey's Italian Bistro on September 27.

 President Jan Dick reviewed our accomplishments from the past year and gave updates on our current projects.  A vote was held to nominate Susan Ehlers and Ann Whitmer for 3 year terms as board members. 

Nieca Nowels introduced herself as the new Marysville Public Library Director. She talked about her background and what she is looking forward to being able to do at Marysville. She also introduced Bethany Anderson, the new Community Engagement Manager.

Founding Friends member, long time board member and past Friends President David Irish was honored for his years of service to the Friends of the Library.  Ryan McDonnell spoke to the group about Dave’s commitment to the library over the years.  His willingness to do hard tasks, be a leader and advocate of the Friends has benefited the community over the years.  He has been instrumental in the creation and growth of the endowment fund and been the face of the Friends since its formation in 1998.  He was presented with a Friends baseball hat and a wooden Phoenix Bat imprinted with many thanks for his years of service.

Entertainment this year was provided by Bo Johnstone with the Union County Historical Society. Bo presented a historical perspective on baseball over the years.  His costume and props provided for an interesting and entertaining presentation.

Many thanks to the Events Committee for another enjoyable annual meeting celebration!
