The annual FLOW Strawberry Festival and Booksale was attended by record crowds on Saturday. The photos above, taken early in the day, don't show the massive numbers that came through in the afternoon. It's too early to report on the proceeds, but we hope FLOW members' hard work was richly rewarded!

And much more for which we offer a hearty Thank you!
It would be difficult to duplicate the organization and support of our friends group, but, if you have an organization you're trying to engage in an annual activity like the strawberry festival, come down to the library and borrow one of these books:
Graham, Christine. Keep the Money Coming: A Step-by-Step Strategic Guide to Annual Fundraising. [658.15 GRA]
Riddle, John. Managing a Nonprofit: How to Write Winning Grant Proposals, Work with a Board, and Build a Fundraising Program. [658 RID]
