Winners from the Birthday Party

Sixteen cakes were entered in four different categories in the cake baking contest at the birthday party. Winners received a $20 gift certificate to a Solon business of their choice. The best “from scratch” cake category was won by Sue Samek with a carrot cake. The winner of the best “Spartan” cake, which went to a tie-breaker, was Liz Cecil. The best “decorated” cake was a creation by Lindsey Lippincott– it was three separate cakes designed to look like a stack of books, each book a different flavor and it took seven boxes of cake mixes and some dowels for support to create it.

There’s still time to see...

The display window– If you haven’t yet seen it, please stop by to view Antonia Russo’s display, “Black Tie Affair,” which commemorates the 10th anniversary of the library.
The birthday cards– Cards were made by party attendees congratulating the library on the 10th birthday and are now on display in the entryway. Stop by and view the artwork and clever cards.

Thank you, community of Solon

Thanks to everyone that came to the events during the week of the library’s 10th anniversary celebration. Every single person that came helped make the week a success. Cakes and ice cream cups were also transported to the residents of the care center who could not attend. This was truly a community celebration to be enjoyed by all.
