An Extraordinary Success

On Jan. 25 and 26, Putt Fore the Essex Library transformed our library into an 18-hole mini-golf course. It was a very special event. The Friday evening adults-only round of mini-golf saw the library buzzing with laughter, music, and good cheer. On Saturday, the library was filled with families having a great time on fairways that wound throughout the library. On both days, the event was an extraordinary success.

We are deeply grateful to those who played mini golf with us. We thank them for supporting the Essex Library, our community center for learning and cultural enrichment.

The support of our generous sponsors was key to the success of Putt Fore the Essex Library, as was their creativity in designing mini-golf holes that reflected their business goods and services. A resounding thank you goes to: Essex Financial, Essex Savings Bank, Bogaert Construction, Anchor & Compass/Compass Rose, the Coleman family, Essex Boat Works, Essex Meadows, Essex Yacht Sales, Gowrie Group, HT Partners, JB Filtration, The Essex/Los Charros Cantina, Timothy A. Tobin, MD, McDermott Auto Group, Prive-Swiss, Snap Fitness, Tova’s Vintage Shop, the Tuttle family, and Katrina A. Wall, DDS.

And last, but not least, is a special mention to the many volunteers who enthusiastically worked to make this unique event happen.

The Friends of the Essex Library extends a huge thank you to the mini golfers of all ages, wonderful sponsors, extraordinary volunteers.
