Good News!

We have received our first email from the Myles and Sondra Moritz Family reporting on their travels. Sondra writes that they have survived the ten hour flight from Newark in New Jersey to Honolulu. About half way through the flight, little Heidi announced that she was ready to go home!
The family has a trip planned to the Polynesian Cultural Center and then will spend another night in Honolulu before continuing on to Guam. What a wonderful experience for all of them.

Krista Tunnell has her bags all packed and leaves tomorrow for London. Krista will spend the fall term at the American International University in London. She has side trips to Stonehenge and Scotland already scheduled. What a wonderful time she will have.

We've talked with Dorothy and her recovery is going well. She is still at her daughter's in Nottingham but should be back home soon. We all miss her.

Rachel is back to work at the library after a ten-day trip to eastern Canada. She travelled in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. This year is the 100th anniversary of the book 'Anne of Green Gables' - a special time to visit PEI. And she had a wonderful trip!

And we have a pile of new books for our readers to enjoy!

Old Home Day has come and gone

Who could have asked for a better Old Home Day weather-wise than what we had??? The perfect weather, after days and days of rain, put everyone in a festive spirit.

We kept very busy here at the library. We'll soon be shopping for some additional books for children with the money earned at our book sale - thank you to everyone who contributed. Many people stopped in at the library and enjoyed our video presentation, 'Remembrances of Rumney' by Nancy MacDonald. What a photographic eye she has.

Dorothy is recovering from recent surgery at her daughter's in Nottingham and we all wish her a speedy recovery. Rachel is enjoying a well-deserved vacation touring Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. This year is the 100th anniversary of Anne of Green Gables - an exciting year to visit.

Old Home Day this Saturday

It's just two days until Old Home Day on Saturday, August 9th so we are busy getting ready. We'll have our annual book sale in the morning from nine until noon. The Library will be open from ten until three for people to stop in and visit. We will have the infamous Rumney scrapbooks out and Nancy MacDonald's dvd, Reminiscences of Rumney, playing. It is always fun to see the many people who grew up in Rumney who now live elsewhere - they have such happy memories.
