Fall Fitness Fundraiser Update

December 15, 2021

Congratulations to the winners in our FOSL Fall Fitness Fundraiser raffle! All of our winners have been contacted and your prizes are at the (newly re-opened!) Shepherdstown Public Library for pickup. We had 22 participants (plus one dog, Jack) who together raised over $1,600 to purchase a bike rack for our new library so we can "ride to read!" Many thanks to all who participated. We hope you had fun getting fit for a good cause!

Golf Club and Ball

Golf Scramble a Huge Success

November 9, 2021

On Friday, October 15, 2021, 64 Golfers met at The Club at Cress Creek to play in the Golf Tournament sponsored by Shepherdstown Public Library and FOSL. Sixteen Teams vied to win prizes & raffle items provided by many local businesses & donors. The weather was great and everyone had a fun day followed by a BBQ dinner at the Club. A net profit of approximately $8,000 was made to benefit the new Shepherdstown Public Library. A big thank you goes out to all those who competed and volunteered their time and energy to pull off another successful Golf Scramble!


John Walsh Art Sale

November 9, 2021

We would like to thank local artist John Walsh for his very generous donation of over 20 paintings to FOSL. John's art was sold by FOSL members at pop-up art sales in Charles Town and Shepherdstown this fall, bringing in hundreds of dollars to benefit the Shepherdstown Public Library!
