Elo-ly Bailey, president of the Friends of Murphy Public Library and her husband Corey, who is also a board member had a wonderful surprise at the annual Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce dinner. Chamber board member, David Brown presented Bailey with a beautiful engraved award to the Friends as the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce’s 2010 Community Organization of the Year.
The Friends have been active since 2005 when then-librarian Teresa Thomas got a gleam in her eye, found some friendly volunteers, and the rest is history. That history is filled with auctions, yard and book sales, a writing club and book club, Christmas decorations, a book sale room, book signings, and art exhibits.
And the same night the Friends received their award, one of the first artists to make a presentation at the library also received an award. Mike Lalone was crowned Citizen of the Year/Duke Power Citizenship Award.
The resident artist at the John C. Campbell Folk School founded the local Empty Bowls event to raise money for local food banks, and volunteers at the Learning Center. He has donated one of his wonderful pieces of pottery every year for the Friends’ auction. Congratulations, Mike – well done!
The 2009 Auction Committee met after the auction to share war stories. Standing (l to r): Teresa Thomas, Corey Bailey, Marilyn Barke, Elo-ly Bailey, Diane Hines, Melissa Barker and Mike Moumousis. Seated: Nora King, Claire Groff, Jeff Murphy, and Kathy Hoyt.
