I’m writing to thank those who attended our annual tribute to John Lennon and the Beatles at the River Falls Public Library on Sunday, Dec. 12. Although the program is free, a pre-holiday gift to the community, each year we collect donations to a humanitarian charity we believe John Lennon would have approved.
This year’s donations went to the International Rescue Committee, a highly rated charity aiding refugees, immigrants and other people in desperate circumstances in countries such as Afghanistan and Syria.
Our audience contributed nearly $300, which year-end matched funding doubled.
Hats off to attendees from Somerset, New Richmond, Hudson, Spring Valley, Prescott, River Falls and elsewhere for your generosity. Such heart-felt giving truly warms the cold season.
And many thanks to the River Falls Public Library for generously hosting us the past 10 years and all who helped make our event a success.
