'A Taste of France' Nov. 14
to Benefit the Mary Jacobs Libary
On November 14 at 7 PM, the Friends of Mary Jacobs Library Foundation will host the 10 th   Annual Food and Wine Fundraising Event at the Mary Jacobs Memorial Library, located at 64 Washington Street in Rocky Hill. This year, the evening will feature a menu highlighting cuisine richly inspired by France, all thoughtfully paired with French wines.

The evening will also include live music by local band, Intersections, a Silent Auction, and a Wine Pull. Sponsorships are still available and include two tickets to the event. Please contact or call 609-924-7073 x 107 for more information.

Tickets for the event are on sale now. Individual tickets are $100. Tickets may be purchased at the Mary Jacobs Library or online:

"This event is enormously popular with more than 200 Rocky Hill and Montgomery residents attending," said Brenda Fallon, Mary Jacobs Memorial Library Foundation Board of Trustees President. "Last year, thanks to the incredible sponsors and attendees, the event raised $40,000 which helped to fund two new HVAC units, plus community and family programming. This year, our goal is to raise even more. And, I just know this community will rally around us and help us reach that goal!"
