Butterfield to host night of Wonder(land)
The Friends of the Butterfield Library will celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, with a 20th annual reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5. Guests, encouraged but not required to dress as a storybook character, will find themselves immersed in Wonderland when they step through the door. The evening features wine and hors d’oeuvres along with live music and a silent auction.
The Badey & Watson/Mary Rice Annual Service Award will be presented to Jim and Lori Ely of Riverview Restaurant.
It recognizes individuals who have gone above and beyond in giving time, talents and compassion to help the library. Tickets are available in advance for $40 per person ($45 at the door).
They can be purchased at the library or online at butterfieldlibrary.orgg. All proceeds benefit the Butterfield Library, and donations are tax deductible.
The library is located at 10 Morris Ave. (Route 9D), in Cold Spring, near the intersection with Main Street. For more information, call 845-265-3040.
