Cowden-Smith Library

Sunday, May 18, 2014.  Sarasota. Florida.  A dedication of the new library was held and attended by approximately 50 people.  The Reverend Dr. Glen Bell opened the ceremony with a few comments of brief history from Annabelle Cowden to Natalie Smith (Librarian). Portraits of each woman were unvailed by Bruce Maxian.  Pastor Glen presented a Certificate of appreciation to Jim Smith in recognition to both Natalie and Jim for their time and talent to the church.  Finally, Glen offered a closing prayer followed by those present hugging Jim and giving their personal reminiscences for Natalie.  The Smith family was present in honor of Natalie and Jim.  Photos showing the empty library and a number of those who attended will appear in the photo section of this network.
