VOLUNTEER CORNER
Thanks to our wonderful president of the Friends of the GPPL, Vicki Granger, our Friends Down Under Bookstore now also sells puzzles. Many of these were donated by Vicki in the beginning but now, we have received many other puzzle donations. We cannot wait to open again, when it is possible, to give you access to these beautiful puzzles.
Thank you, Vicki Granger, for coming up with wonderful ideas for our Friends, being a longtime volunteer and board member, and donating your books, puzzles, but most importantly, your time and talent to the Friends of the GPPL.
