BIG weekend for Friends on the way -- August 22nd AND August 24th!

We've got not one but TWO fabulous events happening that involve our wonderful Andover Friends of the Library on the weekend that includes August 22nd and August 24th!  Sure hope you're going to be part of each of 'em!

On Friday, August 22nd, the Friends are the sponsors for our outstanding end-of-summer concert at the Andover Gazebo, and the featured performers this year are AMY GALLATIN & STILLWATERS!  This fabulous Connecticut-based band has been performing their brand of Bluegrass/Folk/Country music all over the world, and we'll get to enjoy them right here in Andover!  The band features powerful duet singing from Amy Gallatin (guitar) and Roger Williams (resophonic guitar), as well as stellar musicianship from JD Williams on the mandolin and Eric Levenson on bass.  For more info on the band, visit their website by clicking here.  

Bring your chairs and blankets for this free event.  In the case of inclement weather, the show will move inside to the Town Hall Community Room.  The Andover Gazebo is located adjacent to the Andover Town Hall, 35 School Road, Andover.  The Friends will be selling ice cream donated by Highland Park Market, and there will be a 50/50 drawing, too.  Join us, and bring a friend!

Then, on Sunday afternoon, August 24th, between 4PM and 7PM, we sure hope to see you at the Subway Restaurant located inside the Xtra Mart, 497 Jonathan Trumbull Highway (Route 6) in Andover.  Subway is giving the Friends 50% of all of their sales that take place during those three hours, so we'd be delighted to see EVERYONE in Andover eating Subway that night!  You'll even see lots of Library Friends helping out at this great event, so start thinking about what tasty Subway sandwich you'd like to eat on August 24th, won't you?
