Bond Committee Members and Concerned Supporters of Toledo Schools,
What are you doing for Valentine’s Day? Do you have a romantic dinner planned? Will you be snuggling with your loved one and making goo goo eyes at each other?
Looking for something more exciting to do? Good!!
Pat Caldwell has graciously offered to open the Toledo Community Library to the Bond Committee, Facilities Advisory Committee and any other community member rooting for the passage of the Bond on election night, Tuesday, February 14th, starting at 6:30 pm. Why sit alone at home biting your nails when you can gather with friends and do it collectively. I don’t think any manicurists will be on hand, but if you bring some finger food we can keep our teeth occupied on something other than the ends of our fingers. Ron Smith will supply pizza from across the street. BYOB (wine and beer are okay) and bring something edible to share.
We have been at this for over a year! It is time to get together one last time to see if our labors bear fruit.
No need to RSVP.
See you on Valentine’s Day at the library!! Let’s hope Cupid sends some love to the Toledo Schools.
- Who: Toledo Community Library to the Bond Committee, Facilities Advisory Committee and any other community member rooting for the passage of the Bond
- What: Gathering at the Toledo Community Library to share in the excitement of the election returns
- Where: Toledo Community Library, downtown Toledo
- When: Tuesday, February 14, 2017, 6:30 pm to 8:30 or 9:00 (when the courthouse can give us the good news [think positive])
