Super! Super! Super!

Our last book sale in August was beyond just super. New booklovers have discovered Platt and its bargain books, and more people are involved in volunteering in the Bookstore and at sales.

Our great volunteers at the sale were Pat Backes, Millie & Ed Berger, Eileen Bernfeld, Pam Bieber, Ruth & Warren Bromund, Kimmy Chen, Sandi & Elaine Corman, Brian Crossland, Frona DeCovnick, Lynn & Dan Durbin, Vivian Estabrook, Stacy & Anne Fisk, Jesse Goldbaum, Susan Haddox, Ellie Haney, Therese Hearn, Darlene Jackson, Pearl Kalechstein, Leatha King, Richard Lee, Ethel Margolin, Ellen Marshall, CeCe Mestman, Charlene Montante, Dorothy & Gilbert Omens, Mary Ann Ostrom, Nancy & John Reeve, Peggy Richmond, Carol Roseman, Eileen Schafer, Sharon Schuster, Harriet Strauss, Sue Strickland, Lyall Thompson, Kathy Van Olinda, Joan Wagner, Michelle Watts, Margaret Young, and Jackie & Mark Zev.

And, of course, special thanks are due our behind-the-scenes volunteers who donate hours and hours: Bookstore Manager Shel Schuster, Frona DeCovnick (Friends President), Warren Bromund, John Reeve, and Millie Berger (who is into everything concerned with Platt and the Friends).

ALL FRIENDS are invited to contact us if you are interested in becoming active.
