IMG_20151020_174936_281 Operation Round Up Grant Received to Repair Historic Bell

The Historical Society of Alexandria installed the Congregational Church bell on the lawn of the Alexandria Public Library in 1976. The base was built of cement and brick, unfortunately, the base did not withstand the test of time or the weather. Neither the Historical Society nor Congregational Church exists today; no funds were saved for any future care of the monument.

IMG_20151201_145139_500In 2005 The Energy Cooperative’s Board of Directors adopted a community service program called Operation Round Up. The program “rounds up” a member’s bill to the nearest dollar and that amount (which is completely tax deductible) is donated to local charities in their service area. Operation Round Up approved a grant in the amount of $1800 toward the repair and replacement of the bell base.The work is now completed and the bell is in great shape for future generations of our community to enjoy. Please take a moment to visit the library’s front lawn and appreciate the Energy Cooperative Operation Round Up foundation’s generosity.  Included are pictures of before and after.

THANK YOU ENERGY COOPERATIVE!

Memorial Chair Donated

The members of the Alexandria Homemakers Club have generously donated a cozy reading chair in memory of former Homemaker, friend and longtime library patron, Mrs. Jo Budd. Their donation is a wonderful gift that all our library visitors will enjoy. The oversize chair (perfect for reading) is located in the nook near our newspapers and magazines. Thank you, Homemakers!
