Always nice to find out what happened on this day in history
President Bill presented a plaque which Chelsea brought from the old Augusta General Hospital site.
Club historian Milt says it was mounted in the Kiwanis Laboratory. The club made a sizeable donation to the lab at AGH each year.
Acting on a board recommendation: President Bill presented our long term banquet coordinator and server Terri Shaw with honorary membership in the club. Congratulations Terri
Charlie Kanozak told members he will be collecting donations over the next couple of weeks to defray costs for the upcoming Youth Services and Distinguished Youth Programs
Our speaker today was our own Betsy Pohl with an update on the Lithgow Library expansion. She said the existing location will be closed as of Saturday with a temporary library opening at the old hospital (the Ballard Center) in early May.
She told us the new improved library at Winthrop and Oak street will reopen in 2016 with a new main entrance facing Oak Street. It will include a new community room which will seat up to 100.
She said one of the highlights will be an original Stained Glass Window from the old Augusta railroad station, made possible with a donation from Kennebec Savings Bank. The new library will be approximately 31-thousand square feet compared to the existing one at 14,500.
