CARLYLE - The Carlyle Public Library hosted a mid-day treat of tea, sandwiches, scones and cake on June 3. The high tea, bake sale and raffle had approximately 50 people attend.
There was no cost to attend the tea that was held from 1-4 p.m. and all donations and purchases of raffle and bake sale tickets were appreciated.
Proceeds will be used to support library programs and renovations; the top priority is a need to replace several windows.
This was the first high tea the library has hosted since 2000 and it could become an annual event.
Coffee, tea, homemade lemonade, scones, sandwiches, bake sale items and raffle prizes were supplied by librarian Naomi Twietmeyer, her assistants Brenda Daku and Michele Trevisan, library board members, parents and community members.
Twietmeyer notes that the library only functions as smoothly as it does because of the support of these people. She is also grateful for donations and fundraising that keeps the library running afloat; in fact, on June 2 the Southern Plains Co-op hosted a barbecue to support the tea.
Five raffle baskets were assembled with three for adults, one for teens, and one for children. Each was overflowing and each basket had a theme.
