To the Editor:

As a public library, all of the programs hosted by the Mark Skinner Library are free and open to the public. During our annual Well-Being Day, we offer lectures, an exercise component, and a healthy lunch. All of the presenters donate their time and the lunch menu is created from locally sourced food, which is also donated. The Mark Skinner Library Board of Trustees and staff extend a world of thanks to the following individuals and businesses for making our recent Well-Being Day a success.

Presenters Scout Proft, Carson Lake, and Pauline Gardner donated their time to share their considerable knowledge of organic farming/ the locavore movement, reflexology, and Zumba, respectively.

Fresh, local, and organic ingredients for the healthy lunch were provided courtesy of Earth Sky Time Community Farm and Someday Farm. The Avanyu Spa at the Equinox Resort, Carson Lake Reflexology, Earth Sky Time Community Farm, and New Morning Natural Foods donated a wonderful array of raffle prizes.

The generosity of these individuals and businesses supports Mark Skinner Library's mission: to serve the life-long journey of learning by providing information and opportunities for personal enrichment and enjoyment to people of all ages in our community. For that, we thank them!
