Book Donation & Chit Chat

Ladies -- A friend of mine is looking for book donations for Edna’s Haven in Dover. It is a place where homeless people can go to rest, watch television, or seek temporary relief from the pressures of poverty. So, if you have any old books (or magazines from 2013 or 2014), please bring them in. Any book genres are accepted, except children’s books.

I know that many of us have extra books around, so why don't we plan to collect them and meet and have some coffee & chit chat. Or wine and whine. :)

BTW, let me know where you guys wanna meet. Panera? A diner maybe? Hmmm....

    Ladies--what do u think about doing this at my place? I can make Carne Guisada (chicken in broth) with rice for lunch. Maybe someone can bring an appetizer or something? Thoughts? Xoxo

    Meeting at your house is always fun but I think some people have lots of books. Do you want all the books at your house? Just wondering?

    April 23

    • minnie

    Hi. Do we have a place yet to bring the books to? 'Cause I just spoke to the person who will be in charge of setting up a library at the church (Dave Giordano)& he knows nothing about this venture nor does he does he have bookshelves yet,nor storage space for hundreds of books (I know I have over 100 books,"alone".). He is waiting to hear from us(so I am sending a message to Minnie w/his contact info.

    Hi Minnie,
    I have books for this, glad to share with such a great cause! If I can't make it next week I'll work it out for Lynn to bring them.

    Missed you today -hope you are having a wonderful time!

    I just checked Alice's website and they don't serve lunch until 12noon on Saturdays.

    April 10

  • Margaret

    Do we drop off the books at Edna's Haven or do we bring the books to the gathering place?

    April 10

  • Vicky

    How about a park? (Or IS "Alice's" a park?

    April 10

  • Alyssa G.

    Alice's in Lake Hopatcong is nice and has outdoor seating. I'm not sure when the outdoor part opens for the season though. If you're interested, I can call to find out:)

    April 10

  • minnie

    Hey ladies! Any ideas on where to meet? It might be nice to consider a place with outdoor seating in case the weather is nice. :)

    April 9
