The event took place on the corner of Center Road and Island View Road, which is, in fact, where the new library will be located. Folks could even take a “tour” of the new library and visualize where all the rooms would be located. Music was provided by Tim Boursaw, Jane Arney and Hillar Bergman.
They’re ahead of schedule on their fundraising goal, thanks to a generous donation of $750,000 from Bill and Nancy Davy. Construction on the new library will begin sometime in 2018.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
