Howel Classic

Thank You!

THANK YOU to all our patrons who have participated in, and supported, the 2021 Virtual Howel Classic! Although we couldn't be together again this year we hope you have enjoyed being part of the event in some way either through creating a golf hole at home, purchasing a raffle ticket or graciously donating to the event!  We are grateful for your continued support of the Howe and we hope to be celebrating the Classic at the library with you next year.

Thanks to your contributions the Virtual Howel Classic has raised almost $17,000 for Howe programming (including arts and music programs, story times and author talks) as well as enhancements to the collection (in particular electronic resources).  The Howe has provided many virtual options to engage during the pandemic, and we thank you for your support of these vital programs.

We are also grateful for our many local sponsors who provided generous raffle prizes including:

  • Cape Air
  • Coop Food Stores
  • Farmhouse Pottery
  • Hanover Improvement Society
  • Jake's Carwash
  • Lou's Restaurant
  • Peraza Dermatology
  • Ramunto's Pizzeria
  • Red Kite Candy
  • Simon Pearce
  • Still North Books
  • Umpleby's Bakery & Cafe

Congratulations to our raffle winners who will enjoy these great prizes!  Watch the raffle drawing done by Howe Staff 

It was especially fun to see the ways our patrons embraced the event by creating golf holes at their homes.  Check out these awesome photos and videos below

Finally, thank you again to everyone who has supported this event and the Howe Library in the past year.  We are nothing less than extremely grateful to our loyal patrons who have made this past year brighter in the most challenging of times.  We look forward to the day when we can welcome you again through the doors of the Howe!
