Colfax Class of 1969 Donates Projector to the Library for Community Use
Needing a projector for their 50 year high school reunion, the graduating class of 1969 collected donations from classmates to purchase one. Afterward, the class generously donated it to Whitman County Library so others in the community would be able to use it.

Adult library cardholders can now contact WCL at 509-397-4366 to reserve the projector for personal use.

Class members dropping off the donation are (L to R) Carol Myers,
Naomi Daubert, Library staffers Kristie Kirkpatrick and James Morasch,
Wayne & Jan Varnes, and Darlene Lee

 Thank you Class of 1969!
