The Lanpher Memorial Library Spirit of Community Award will be given in honor of Sandy Bowen. Sandy has been a volunteer at the Lanpher Library for many years. Her friendly personality and quick humor make her a favorite of children and adults.
The Marrion Hood Lanpher Memorial Library Legacy Award will be given in memory of Connie Page who was a Trustee and Volunteer at the Lanpher Library. Connie passed away in 2010.
Connie's nephew, Russel Page, planted the Pin Oak tree in front of the Library in her honor, and on May 4th, inspired by Connie's love for reading and teaching, and the love that local children have for Sandy, (...and also by the book "Wishtree", by Katherine Applegate), we will encourage community members to write a wish on a strip of fabric and tie it to the branches of the Pin Oak.
