Some Housekeeping, of a Sort

I've been blogging less, recently, in great part because I've been more involved in the fund-raising program for the new library in Point Roberts.  I hope to be doing more blogging about Point Roberts as the busier summer season starts (e.g., this weekend there is a Friday night lecture on the geology of Lily Point, at the Community Center, 7:30 pm; a walking tour the next morning, the Saturday Market, concerts at the Church on Saturday and Sunday, etc., and also a movie in the yard at Brewster's on Saturday when it gets dark, and if it doesn't rain.  (see here for details.)

Additional new stuff:  there is a new 'Craig's List' type site for Point Roberts here.  And, of most importance to me and, I hope, to readers, a new blog to track Point Roberts' new library fund raising progress:  www.foprl.blogspot.com

FOPRL stands for "Friends of the Point Roberts Library," a title I hope will be finding an easy-to-retrieve residence in locals' and visitors' individual and collective minds.  The task to raise money for renovating the Julius Firehall and getting a 21st Century library out of it is formidable but doable, we believe, the architects believe.  But it's going to take the whole community to get it done.

 The first posts are already up on the FOPRL blog (www.foprl.blogspot.com) ; more to come soon.
