Heirloom Harvest Community Farm and CSA has donated a share for the upcoming growing season.
One Friends of the Westborough Public Library raffle winner will need a hearty appetite this spring and summer. Heirloom Harvest Community Farm and CSA farmer John Mitchell has donated one of the 250 to 300 shares for the upcoming 22-week growing season, which starts in last week in May or first week in June, depending on the weather, he says. Shares cost $650. Mitchell says he farms eight to 10 acres of the 17-acre field on Hopkinton Road. “Each week, we’ll harvest what’s available that week and bring it up to the tables for people to pick up,” he says. “So, people will get anywhere from eight to 16 different (“certified organic local grown”) vegetable or fruit items each week” over the season.

Resident Michele Lung made the quilt for the Friends of the Westborough Public Library's raffle.
The design of the quilt hanging at the Westborough Public Library has two names. The official name is found in “Certifiably Crazy." Resident Michele Lung borrowed that from the library, and has donated the quilt to the Friends of the Westborough Public Library’s raffle. And she has given the design a special name. “The name I would like the quilt to have is 'Circle of Friends,' because it’s really the Friends of the Public Library, and it looks like circles,” Lung says.

Lung says her friend Geralyn “Dee” Kohler, the Mill Pond School librarian, had “mentioned …

Dear Westborough Patch Editor, The Friends of the Westborough Public Library are currently seeking donations for our upcoming May book sale, which will take place beginning May 17 through May 20. As a nonprofit charitable organization that uses the proceeds raised to benefit our library and the patrons it serves, we have always been very grateful to be in a community that so generously supports our efforts. We are writing to you as we have become a bit concerned about a general confusion that seems to exist about other entities that are requesting “donations” of books. As recently as April 23, 2012, Mitch Lipka, author of the “Consumer Alert” column in the Telegram Gazette was specifically asked if GotBooks.com is a charitable …
