Thanks to all who helped us with the "Purse-suit" of Happiness Fundraiser. To those who donated purses, empty or filled. To those who helped set up the tables and get the silent auction ready. And to those who bid and won the purses. The library raised $768.00 and we couldn't have done it without you. Thanks again!!
The Mill Pond Library in Kingston cordially "purse-suades" you to help us "purse-sue" a very special kind of Silent Auction. Imagine your library filled with elegant hand bags that "clutch" your attention, filled with "purse-sonalized" gifts to amuse, entertain, pamper and surprise. Over the next few weeks the Library needs creative "purse-ons" to rummage through the closet and latch onto those often once used and now unwanted hand bags. Fill them with things other people might enjoy. Maybe a bottle of Champagne, wine-glasses, and a romantic DVD create the perfect "purse-ona" presented in a shiny red tote. Grab your alligator baguette, throw in some potting soil, add a plant or flower for the perfect hanging garden accent. You get the idea; it's like a gift-basket, only more "purse-onal". With Mother's Day just around the corner, nothing could be better than a beautiful purse filled with Mom's favorite things. And we don't want the guys to feel "purse-cuted", so how about a camouflage backpack or barrel bag with tools or items for a day of fishing. Not feeling creative? Just leave your empty baggage at the library and we'll take care of creatively filling them so each purse will "tote" its own "purse-onality". So many beautiful purses you'll find it difficult to maintain your "purse-spective". Finally on April 27th the "Purse-suit" of Happiness silent auction begins and will run until Saturday, May 2nd. Bid perhaps on a goodie-filled Gucci or capacity-crammed Coach. "Purse-severe" throughout the week to check your bids often. If you're "purse-sistant" you'll come out a winner.
