The 2019 Roeliff Jansen Community Library Gala, “A Party in the Park,” Jun 8


The 2019 Roeliff Jansen Commuity Library, “A Party in the Park,” will be held Saturday at the Roeliff Jansen Park. The 10th Annual Gala will celebrate Charlotte Shutts, a life-long Roe Jan resident, who has been a valued Library volunteer for 15 years. Shutts served as Secretary of the Friends and then President for six years. She can be found at the Library circulation desk every Friday morning.
As always there will be great food from local chefs and restaurants to enjoy with tasty wines. Music will be provided by Kris Jensen’s Swinging All-Stars with vocalist Wanda Houston, presenting American Songbook selections.

Popular Gala fundraising traditions returning this year include a raffle basket, valued at $1,000. The “Hygge=Comfort” basket features a super-soft throw, a copy of “The Year of Living Danishly,” and assorted items and gift certificates.

The silent auction will include over 75 items and experiences. Information on silent auction items is on view now at the library. You can also leave an absentee bid for items at the library.

The live auction, presided over by Copake Auction’s auctioneer Seth Fallon, will include tickets to Disney’s “Frozen” on Broadway, front row seats to ABC’s “The View,” a weekend stay at the Catskill Animal Sanctuary, and three entirely different priceless culinary experiences provided by noted chefs.

Those who wish to honor this year’s honoree, Charlotte Shutts, can add a message to be featured in the on-screen tribute at the Gala. Forms for doing this are available at the library and HERE.
