On December 9th over 35 LLAM members, friends and family started the season with a holiday party at The Waterfront Hotel on Thames Street in Fells Point.
The restaurant, located just across the street from the Homicide: Life in the Street building, was the perfect setting for holiday fun and cheer. The festivities included a delicious buffet dinner, an open bar and the traditional silent auction.
The auction raised $550 that will be split between the Maryland Food Bank and the LLAM Scholarship Fund. Auction bidding was active and the items included a chocolate basket, spa kit, a ceramic lamb, several books, a watercolor print, wine, a Sheep “Baddd Girl (ewe know it)” T-shirt, a Flip Video Camera (donated by Todd Henderson of West) and many other items.
Janet Camillo was awarded the Service to LLAM award. Susan Herrick expressed the appreciation of all LLAM members for Janet’s many years of service, which included nearly every possible LLAM office and committee chairmanship, as well as participation in AALL,numerous Special Interest Section committees and many other library related groups. Janet was joined at the party by her husband, Larry Johnson.
