Many fun things to do and see.
Photo Show in the Library, 706 4th St.
Visit the Library during January and February and see the photographs on display by Adam Bacher. President Clinton wrote to Adam, “Thank you so much for your kind note and your photographs from Rwanda. I’m delighted to learn that they’re on public display. The photos are beautiful, and I’m so glad you’re using your talent to raise awareness about life in Rwanda. Photographs like these serve a powerful illustration that we are all more similar than we are different. I’m so glad to see that you’re continuing to work hard for the people of Rwanda, and I commend you for your efforts. Best wishes for future success. -President Bill Clinton
