Weekly Newsletter ~ November 21, 2012

With Thanksgiving in our hearts, we have many people and organizations to thank as we look back on 2012.  We are grateful to Ed Pyne, Jan Stawser, and Diana Green for putting together the Heyworth Buzz each week, sharing news, as well as our history in the Looking Back section.  We appreciate our volunteer Library Board of Trustees for their seven-year terms giving guidance and overseeing the policies of the library.  Many thanks to our two very gracious ladies that volunteer weekly with our book sale, and organize our local history collection.  Thank you Dee Frazier and Shirley Koch! Thank you to Lona Soice, Charlette O’Dea, and Richard Gray for spearheading the renewed interest in our local history,and beginning our Heyworth Oral History Project.

Kudos to Heyworth H.S. East Project for tackling the digitizing of our local history and the mapping of our local cemeteries. We can’t wait to see your final projects that will benefit our community now and in the future! Thank you to Faith in Action for making the library building sparkle a little more each year.  We love the energy and enthusiasm the Heyworth FFA puts into anything we ask of them to be done at the library from cleaning and decorating to prepping for painting.

Many thanks to our local Heyworth General Federated Women’s Club for all the monetary gifts donated each year to purchase new materials, and gifts to supplement our children’s programs.  Thank you to all the local businesses that donate funds to support our summer reading programs each year to benefit the youth in our community.
