To The Daily Sun,
It's another success for the Gilmanton Year Round Library! Thank You to everyone who attended Doug Towle's Old House Tour on Saturday, August 3rd. The event attracted approximately 200 guests who were able to visit nine homes, and many of those attended the reception at The Mack House, Doug's current restoration project. Doug has been restoring homes in Gilmanton for over 30 years and his positive influence on the town cannot be understated.
Many thanks to all of the homeowners who agreed to share so readily — it wouldn't have been possible without them. They were gracious and informative, sharing the history and beauty of some of Gilmanton's old homes.
Through the generosity of both townspeople, and people from afar, the Gilmanton Year Round Library raised over $5,000. A good time was had by all, with numerous requests for a repeat performance in the near future.
Anne Kirby, Chairman
Gilmanton Year-Round Library Board of Trustees.
