Friends’ president Nora King has a special invitation to all Friends members.  Our quarterly meeting is Tuesday, November 17, at 6 p.m. in the Murphy Library’s meeting room.  If you would like to join the Friends, dues are $10 per year and can be paid anytime at the library before 6 p.m.

Special guest will be Eleanor Lambert Wilson.  Ellie Wilson is a Brasstown resident who has written two books about her coming to our part of North Carolina from New York.  Her first book is titled “My Journey to Appalachia” and the second, “My Life in Brasstown” describes her experiences in the world of John C. Campbell Folk School.  A Vassar graduate, Mrs. Wilson promises to be an entertaining speaker.

The meeting starts at 6 pm with our pot luck and we have some excellent cooks in our group.  Utensils, plates, napkins and liquid refreshments will be provided.  It is an important meeting because of the election of persons to replace  Board members.

Also, a “must see” is the newly painted background wall with its lovely tree in the meeting room.  It was one of the projects we sponsored along with other volunteers from the community to make the room more inviting for the little ones who meet there for their children’s programs.
