Congratulations, Ronnie!  Your months of work paid off in a successful race, the Bobby Sptiler Memorial 5k Run/Walk at Warner Hall.  There were some “scary” people who ran the good race, but then, it was Halloween.  Thanks to the sponsors, the runners, the volunteers and zombies who made it a great day!  ***  Congratulations to Robyn, former student and GED graduate who stopped by to share the news that her hard work and continuing studies have paid off in the form of a raise in salary.  Robyn certainly exemplifies the statistics that a GED graduate does make more money than a person without a GED.  Thanks for sharing the news.  ***  Next on the ALMP agenda is the Christmas Stocking Boutique which is held at the Courthouse Restaurant beginning November 27th.  Do you sew?  Or know someone who does?  Make a stocking from any material (buy your material at Field’s Quilting & Crafts and receive a 10% discount on the materials used to make the stocking), take the stocking to the Courthouse Restaurant for display.  The silent bids will be placed.  Who knows you might win a Blue Ribbon for best in show, most creature or highest bid.  The stockings will be on display until December 19th.  ***   The BoD and some volunteers will be wrapping gifts at Barnes & Noble in New Town (Williamsburg) in December.  ***  Please remember: Black Friday follows Thanksgiving, then it’s Cyber Monday and new for ALMP this year is #Giving Tuesday.  That is the day throughout the country when supporters of nonprofits are encouraged to make a donation to their favorite charity and #GiveGab will not have a service charge.  More news in a few days.  ***  Meetings for the month:  11/04: GCRC, ll/17: BoD 11/19: MCRC, BAH (@ Chesapeake Bank, MMD.  For your information:  The library will close @ 2PM on 11/25 and remain closed 11/26 and 11/27.  ***  Enjoy Thanksgiving with family and friends.  *** Remembers to tell others about Adult Literacy.  Thanks …
