Last week Genia, Michael, Gail, and I went to a small celebration at the Litchfield library in honor of Jamie. She was involved with the library for decades in all sorts of roles, from Board president to volunteer. More recently, she made a donation to the library, part of which was used to upgrade the community room. The celebration was in her honor. But, given that there were quite a few people there and it was in the evening, when she is generally not at her best, she didn’t attend. The plan was to go visit there some nice spring morning.
Today was beautiful, and I headed off to Litchfield after breakfast. Jamie was all ready to go, knew exactly what was up. Lina is expert at handling the wheelchair, and she was a master at negotiating the hill on Gallows Lane (and for sure wasn’t going to let me do it!).
Ann-Marie, the library director, met us. First stop was just outside the community room, where the plaque is, photos there, and then inside and more photos. Everything looked great. The library is a wonderful place.
And then time to head home.
It was a fine visit. Jamie enjoyed it. Couldn’t have asked for a better outing.
