WESTPORT - Each year, the Westport library board and its volunteers eagerly prepare for their annual Holiday Party. This year, the event will be held Saturday, Nov. 20, from 6-8 p.m.
The party is a festive occasion that combines a silent auction with the tasting of international wines provided by Boquet Liquor in Elizabethtown,complemented by hors d'oeurves as well as a baked ham. There will again be the entertaining demonstration of the opening of a bottle of champagne with a sabre. Eric Benn will come up from New York City to perform. Board and committee member Elizabeth Frum said the wonderful range of items in the auction is even greater than last year. The unique objects are complemented by a range of generous gift certificates such as a day at the Normandy Beach Club, tickets to the Depot Theatre, golf at the Westport Country Club. Two major pieces of furniture are an early 1900's Rolltop desk and an antique mahogany secretary from the 19th century.
Paintings, jewelry, small sculptures, chairs, a Westport water bottle and even a brand new snow rake, are part of the array.
Tickets will be available at the door. A donation of $15 a person is suggested. The library is located at 6 Harris Lane. For more information, call 962-8219.
