Dewey, Thankem & Howe

Meaning, of course, we are thrilled to thank all the individuals and businesses who helped make our annual fundraiser, "Do The Dewey," a rousing success.

It takes a large group of volunteers from both the Library and the Rotary Club of Des Plaines to get the event off the ground and keep it in the air. We also thank the energetic and patient teens who volunteered to run back and forth with trays of food and who somehow kept smiling all night (that's one of them in our traditional "Dewey Pizza Pose" up above)! Making a big splash at "Dewey" this year was the Des Plaines Camera Club, who took photos of happy guests and activities and then displayed them on our video display system. Finally, we are indebted for the valuable donations of prizes, food, beverages and other items, donations which kept our costs down while we provided a fun evening of eating, drinking and merry-making.

Here's a big "THANK YOU" to everyone who attended and/or donated to the 2010 "Do The Dewey." We appreciate your support of the Library and the Rotary Club, even more so during these challenging economic times. Please, look over the list below and support these local businesses to show your gratitude for their decision to give back to the community. If you attended "Do The Dewey," watch for a recap slideshow right here within the next few days.
