Without the following we would not have been able to present and publicize the programs we scheduled: Shepherd University’s Scarborough Library, the Shepherdstown Chronicle, the Shepherdstown Community Club, the Shepherdstown Visitors Center, the Spirit of Jefferson, and the WV Observer.
We appreciate the talents of the folks who educated and entertained hundreds of children and adults during our free events: Jill of Critters and Conservation, musician Tony Martirano, the Maryland Science Center, and author/illustrator Kevin Sherry.
As always, very special thanks are due to FOSL, Friends of the Shepherdstown Library, for funding our Summer Program events and enabling us to offer thousands of stickers and bookmarks.
