26th Annual Autumn Affair Honoring Joyce Neary and Ed Rigney

The Friends of the Cohoes Public Library will be holding their 26th Annual Autumn Affair on November 1 between 12 – 3 pm at the Senior Center of Cohoes. The perennially popular Sonny & Perley will provide musical accompaniment to a catered buffet lunch by Smith’s Restaurant of Cohoes. Beer, wine and soda will be available for purchase and multiple gift baskets will be raffled.

This year, the Friends will be honoring Joyce Neary and Ed Rigney for their dedicated service to our Library. Joyce was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Library and served as liaison to the Friends. Many will remember Joyce at the bake sale table of the Friend’s fund raisers. She was a whiz at organizing the donations and presenting them in their best light. Edmund “Ed” Rigney was a long time treasurer of the Friends and organizer extraordinaire of the Autumn Affair. A man of many talents, he was also known for his delicious fudge!

Tickets are just $28 per guest. Due to limited space, reservations are necessary. Reservation forms are available at the Library. But hurry, the reservation deadline is October 27, and they can go quickly! For information, please call Khryn Rigney at 237-3087. This is the group’s largest fund raiser for the Library. Money from the Friends has provided funding for programs, additional books and computer accessories. Please join them in continuing to provide for the Library.
