Library friends celebrate the season with Santa

Friends of Walker Memorial Library gathered for a holiday potluck meal Dec. 17 at American Legion Post 62 on Dunn Street. A Yankee swap followed the meal.

Friends President Lorraine Glidden said Dennis Marrotte hosted the event. Santa got wind of the Christmas party and made a surprise personal appearance.

“You made us all feel welcome and did everything you could to make the afternoon go off without a hitch,” Glidden said when thanking Marrotte.
