Schamaling’s “Amazing Race” Approaches

raceFulton’s “Amazing Race” is fast approaching and we are eagerly looking forward to this annual fun-filled family event.  Join us for some friendly, yet serious, competition for all ages as you and your team race throughout downtown Fulton working together to complete a scavenger hunt.  We are stepping up the difficulty this year folks, so come with fresh minds and fast feet!  Teams need to include at least one adult and mostly family members (extended and very extended welcome).  And as always, we will be awarding prizes to 1st – 3rd place winners and providing pizza after the race!

 

New Additions to the Schmaling Board of Trustees

We are pleased to announce two new special additions to the library: Paula Ensinger and Dave Wiersema! These fine people have recently filled the seats of Beverly Berzinski and Bruce Woods on Schmaling’s Board of Trustees. We kindly thank Bev and Bruce for their time and commitment to their well-served posts.
Also, we congratulate Teresa Ray as our new Board President. We thank Barb Knight for her time leading as President as she will now be serving as Secretary. Nancy Countryman keeps things steady as she continues in the Treasurer position.
Board meetings are open to the public and meet the 3rd Monday of every month at 5pm. See Happenings for exact dates.
