The Friends of the Burnham Library would like to publicly thank the estate of Sarah Crocker for including our organization in her will with a very significant bequest.
Ms. Crocker, who passed away in May 2015, is remembered as a frequent and friendly patron of the library, who also made generous donations to the library during her lifetime.
Now that the estate is settled, we have been informed of the total gift, and we are truly honored and grateful for Ms. Crocker’s foresight and generosity in naming the Friends of the Library in her will. She can be assured that we will use this gift wisely to ensure the Burnham Library can continue to provide the Colchester community with enriching, educational and fun activities and materials in the years ahead.
We hope others will follow the example of Sarah Crocker in making bequests, according to their ability, to the community organizations that have enriched them throughout their lives.
With thanks and gratitude,
President, Friends of the
