On Wednesday, May 29th The Century Club held a reception in honor of retired Board Trustee Richard "Dick" Gunsalus. Barbara Henderson (Century Club member) gave a wonderful speech highlighting all of Dick's many, many contributions to the Phoenix community, including his 21 years as a Phoenix Public Library Board Trustee. Dick was presented with a plaque by Noreen Patterson (Board President and Century Club member). The plaque is inscribed:
In 1914, a group of young ladies formed a reading group that evolved into the founding group of The Phoenix Public Library. Calling themselves the Century Club, they raised money to establish a New York State Chartered Library in the Village of Phoenix. The Century Club has remained a strong presence at the Library and continues to raise money every year to help with the costs of maintaining a modern library facility for our community. This year the Century Club is pleased to donate $1,500 to the operating fund and $500 to the Summer Reading Program. Thank you for your support.
The Phoenix Public Library Board of Trustees meets every second Thursday of the month at 9:oo am in the library's Century Club Room.
