Thank You to Karen and Patti

Thank you to Karen and Patti


Each year on June 30th, the Library Board has to say good-bye to at least one of their board members.  This year, Karen Miles and Patti Stewart are stepping down. 

Karen has served two terms for a total of 12 years.  She served as President for two years through the building of the new Community Building.  She also served as a Library representative on the Building Committee.  We have relied on her ability to look carefully at each new challenge the library has faced and give wise counsel.  We will miss her.

Patti came onto the Library Board in 2005 and jumped right into our activities.  She and Beth Kimm created the memorable floats that you have seen in past Sauerkraut Days parades.  She served as President in 2008-2009.  Patti & her family have moved to North Carolina.  We are missing her already—especially with Sauerkraut Days right around the corner.
