I recently read a quote about hard work by the great American statesman, general, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and US Secretary of State Colin Powell. He said that "There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure." Other than the failure part, the quote made me think of the wonderful hard-working Friends of the Summit Free Public Library who just completed two wildly successful jewelry sales to benefit the library.
This wonderful group of volunteers worked tirelessly for months to select, organize, price and display the jewelry donated to the library for these sales. Tiffany's could learn some lessons from the organization and display of the merchandise assembled by our wonderful "Friends". Some "Friends" who gave generously of their time include Linda Fitzpatrick, Sheila Bonnell, Rikki Owen, Patricia Meola, Rajiv Kewalramani, Patricia Black, Sue Turner, Siobhan Creem, Debbie Walter, Elisa Kessler Corporale, Diane Hull and many more.
