The Friends of the Back Mountain Memorial Library in Dallas recently held a luncheon in honor of outgoing president Kay Simons who served the group as their leader from 2007-2014.
Also in attendance was the founder of the group, Shirley Forney, who was president from 1987-2002. Jill Kryston, president from 2002-2007, was among the well wishers. And their new president Kate Pitkat was welcomed into her new role by those in attendance.
The group has been the fundraising arm of the library for 27 years and, from 2007-2013, raised almost $400,000 for the library to help with operating costs.
