Friends of Evelyn Meador 2017 Holiday Reception a Big Success!

On December 18th, the Friends of Evelyn Meador Board of Directors hosted a Holiday Reception to recognize Friends and Library volunteers for their support throughout the year. It’s always a great time to see old friends, meet new ones and catch up on life’s happenings. We had a great turnout and lots of goodies to eat.

Tree of Honor – Original Wood Carving by Local Artist James Phillips

Local artist James Phillips has a unique talent: he transforms fallen trees into original works of art. James generously donated the Tree of Honor that you see in the Evelyn Meador Library in Seabrook, Texas. The Friends use the Tree of Honor to recognize volunteers and members of the community that support the Library through donations and volunteering. It’s carved from a single piece of oak! It is a special, one of a kind piece and we are very proud to call it our own. Drop by the Library and take a look at this wonderful work of art! Click here to learn more about this wonderful artist.
