Somers Library

Relay for Life

June 16 – 17 (from 7PM to 7AM)

Relay for life is an event sponsored by the American cancer society. The Somers women’s club has participated for the past several years by forming a team to walk during this event.  This year the rain or shine event will be held on June 17-18, (from 7 pm to 7 am) on the field between Somers intermediate school and Somers Middle School.  Please consider joining our team by going to the Somers Relay website, relayforlife.org/somersny and register with the Somers Women’s Club.  If you are unable to join us, please consider making a donation to this worthwhile community event.  Luminaries can also be purchased on our team page.

Community Center of Northern Westchester

If you wish to contribute food to the Community Center’s Food Pantry at our meeting, please bring canned tuna or meat.  However, if you prefer to donate fresh food, the number one most needed item continues to be fresh fruit and vegetables.  At the meeting on Wednesday,, I will collect all donations and deliver them to the Center on the following day.

 

Remember too that the Prom Drive is still underway for men’s and women’s formal wear and accessories.  The drive will run through June.

Somers Food Pantry at St Luke’s

We had another very successful collection for the Food Pantry at St. Luke’s at our March meeting.  We collected $44.89.  To date members have donated $144.89. Thank you all for your generosity to those who are less fortunate.

FIN Projects

The Parks & Rec. Dept. received the check from the Somers Women’s Club to enable four children  to attend camp this summer.

Bluebird Project

It is Bluebird Season.

The 2 Bluebird boxes will be cleaned out and ready for occupancy.  Bluebird monitors are needed to watch and report all activity in the 2 boxes located behind the Somers library. Let Joanne J. know if you can help.  A signup sheet will be circulated at the April meeting. Sign up for a week at a time, running from Saturday to Saturday starting April 2nd thru September 15 or so.  Call Joanne if you cannot attend the meeting and want more information.

Garden Clean Up Day

We will be working on cleaning up the “triangle” on April 8th.  The garden committee will notify you as to the date of our May planting.  Please sign up at our April meeting if you have an interest to help us with planting.  Thank you from the garden committee. 

Coupons for Troops

Please bring your coupons to the next meeting.  We didn’t have enough to mail in March, so they are going out in April!!!   Thank you
