Fundraising News

Hello everyone! My name is Lyall Thompson, and I will be serving as Fundraising Vice President for the upcoming year. I hope my education and practical experience will prove valuable to the Friends and Platt Library. I have been a West Valley resident since 1976, hold a bachelor's degree from Cal State Northridge, and earned an MBA from California Lutheran University. My career has been in the accounting and finance arena, mainly serving as Controller for a number of small businesses. (I'm also a grandmother with a grown son and daughter, and a 7-year-old grandson.)

Perhaps more important, I know Platt Library. I have been a member of the Friends for a number of years, and have enjoyed volunteering in the Bookstore, at many of the Book Sales, and particularly at the Children's Holiday Boutique. I must admit that being in charge of fundraising is a new hat for me to don, but challenges rarely daunt me. It will be my mission to follow in the footsteps of my predecessor, Mary Ann Ostrom, who arranged the recent Metro Rail Art Tour—a rousing success that exceeded all expectations. Also to her credit, Mary Ann was responsible for the Friends Pizza Night, the Barnes & Noble Fundwraps, and for carrying on the ever-popular Children's Holiday Boutiques.

Being particularly fond of the Children's Boutique, I can assure you that it will be back this year—bigger and better than ever. Further details of this and other upcoming events will be in the next newsletter. In the meantime, I would love to hear from you.  Any comments or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Lyall Thompson, Fundraising VP
