A multi-generational group of 20 women got together recently for some old school cutting and pasting at the Bench Womenâ€™s Night. The group, whose name comes from a story about two women who got to know each other when a new bench appeared in their cul de sac, created collages with a twist. The group arose from a desire of women in the church for a fun opportunity to get to know others in the community. They first met in the late fall to make burlap wreaths, and plan to meet again in the spring, hoping that even more women in the village will join them.
The Port Williams library participated in the AVRLâ€™s International Book Giving Day event. Three books were hidden around the village as a gift to whoever found them to keep or pass along. The AVRL is hoping that those who found one will post about the experience on the libraryâ€™s Facebook page.
