The Howel Classic 2020 & Our Generous Community
As most of you know, this year’s Howel Classic mini-golf event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This change of plans was disappointing to many attendees (especially our youngest fans), and as a non-profit we were concerned about the impact it would have on the money raised by this event. The Howe Library Corporation is happy to report that thanks to our generous supporters, we raised approximately $32,500 (net) - almost the same amount as the previous year!
We especially appreciate the continued backing of our Corporate Sponsors. (You’ll find a complete listing of the sponsors below.) We encourage you to frequent these businesses when it is feasible to do so. Many thanks to you all for supporting our programs and services during this challenging time!

Many thanks to our supporters and Howel Classic sponsors
As many of you know, the Howe Library Corporation’s 10th Annual Howel Mini-Golf Classic was one of many fundraising events cancelled in the Upper Valley as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of you may not realize, however, that nearly all of our ticket holders converted their purchases into donations and every one of our corporate sponsors chose to continue their financial support. (You’ll find a complete listing of the sponsors at the bottom of this email.) This made it possible for us to avoid revenue losses due to the cancellation of this event and reinforced our belief that residents of the Upper Valley are generous and open-hearted. 
Our board members deeply appreciate the support of local businesses, community members, and Howe Library patrons. We hope that in this time of crisis the generosity and community spirit in the Upper Valley prevails and support will continue for local non-profits and local businesses.
With gratitude,
Wayne Gersen

Ledyard Gallery – Seeking Installation Volunteers
Throughout the year the Ledyard Gallery highlights the work of area artists. We are looking for installation volunteers to help artists hang their work and take it down. The ability to work well with others is important. Experience hanging art shows and an eye for aesthetics are helpful but not required. The time commitment is a few hours every other month, on the first Thursday and/or Friday of the month. Please contact Michelle Schembri with your interest at: howetogive@thehowe.org
