The Howel Classic

Scores a Hole in One!

  Many thanks go to the individuals, families and businesses of the Upper Valley that came together to support the 2018 Howel Classic Howel Classic Saturday night mingling (Photo credit Kathy Robey)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 almost $43,000. 160 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. And let’s not forget the scrumptiouHowel Classic Sunday golfing (Photo credit Molly Drummond)s food and libations that rounded out the festive evening.

Sunday was a different event entirely with 435 family members coming to enjoy golf, pizza and burritos. There were so many kids running around it was hard to keep track of them (although we knew they were here from the loud noises emanating from the course and café). They ate their way through 30 pizzas, 200 mini-burritos and 400 cookies! Several people said, 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 eight years!
