Ann’s 65th Birthday and Retirement Fete

Ann’s long-awaited events for 2016—her 65th birthday and the retirement after 20 years at the Wayland Public Library, the last 14 as director. The Library staff had a private party and the Trustees hosted a public reception and fete at the Wayland Library. The festive occasion featured music from Andy Moore, refreshments, and speeches by Aida Gennis, chair of the Trustees, and Louise Brown, former Library Director (before Ann). Ann received gifts and responded with heartfelt comments. Smiles all around. See some pictures here.
