Black Fly Bash - Plants, Bake and Book Sale - Thank you

New Vineyard Public Library

Plant, Bake & Book Sale

(Black Fly Bash)


On Saturday, June 3, NV Public Library held its Annual  Plant, Bake & Book Sale – fondly known as the Black Fly Bash. Yes – there were plenty to go around!


We had a wonderful array of plants – flowers, veggies and even indoor varieties–  the Lilies that Helen Wilkey of Vienna provides, the plants from Attwood’s Nursery in New Portland, Robin’s Flower Pot in Farmington, Michelle Case in New Vineyard for their donations and of course those plants  from our local gardeners!


Our army of bakers produced pies, breads (with relevant names to the Black Fly), cookies, cobblers, cakes and even a candy or two  - all of which seemed to disappear very early on in the day.


And the books were a great hit as people got into the summer reading mode and had to take at least one book with them.


Thank you to all our contributors and customers for making this event such a success and supporting the NVPL mission. And a big thank you to Glenda and Dick Hargreaves for giving people the opportunity on Sunday to pick up a plant or two.


Great time in a great community. See you next year!!

New Vineyard Public Library Golf Scramble

NV Public Library held its Annual Golf Scramble at the Diadema Golf Course in North Anson on Sunday, June 10tth.


The course was in perfect condition, the weather couldn’t have been better and 43 players engaged in a “best ball” competition. Following a 9 hole scramble where there was opportunity  for many  to show their skills for the longest drives, putting and chipping competitions and even attempts for a Hole in One – the players had a delightful lunch organized and served by  our Librarian Mina Miller and NVPL Trustees  - Glenda Hargreaves and Betsy Turcotte…most enjoyable. Awards followed with much participation by the audience recognizing the accomplishments of teams and individuals. John Maki who is the force behind the scenes for organizing the teams and course activities provided some special prizes for unsuspecting individuals.


A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to making this event a such a success and we hope that you will join us next year for our 6th scramble. Teams can register with John Maki at 652-2417
