Many thanks go to the individuals, families and businesses of the Upper Valley that came together to support the 2019 Howel Classic mini golf extravaganza. In its eighth year, The Howel Classic has become a real community event. The weekend was quite a success, with over 600 people attending and the library raising $41,000. 150 people came to Saturday’s festivities, including many who had never attended the event before. We had a great mix of people and the library was humming with good conversation and jazz music. We also had 25 kids downstairs having their very own pajama party while their parents enjoyed the festivities.
Sunday was a different event entirely with 440 family members coming to enjoy golf, pizza and burritos. Attendees ate their way through 30 pizzas, 200 mini-burritos and 400 cookies! Several people commented, ‘my child has never had this much fun in the library’. Many children (and their parents) look forward to this event every year, and in fact some have attended all nine years!
Our utmost appreciation goes to the following volunteers for donating their dedication of time and talent to make this event a success.
- Keri Craft — Events Committee Chair and Sponsorships
- Mariruth Graham — Beverages
- Laura Larrick — Sponsorships and Entertainment Chair
- Heidi Reynolds — In-kind Sponsor Chair
- Emilia Warrington — Pajama Party Chair & Decor Chair
We hope to see everyone on March 28-29 for the 10th Annual Howel Classic!
