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 2016 Howel Classic mini golf extravaganza. In its sixth year, The Howel Classic has become a real community event. The weekend was quite a success, with almost 525 people attending and the library raising almost $38,000. 137 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 21 kids downstairs having their very own pajama party while their parents enjoyed the festivities. And let’s not forget the scrumptious food and libations that rounded out the festive evening. You'll find some photos from the night at: https://www.flickr.com/groups/2016Howelclassicsaturdaynight/
Sunday was a different event entirely with 384 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 500 cookies! Several parents said that their 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 six years!

We hope to see everyone March 18-19, 2017 for next year's Howel Classic!
