Big E Ticket Distribution

On the evening of July 20, 2011, volunteers and members of the Western MA Library Advocates Board of Directors gathered at Lynn Coakley's home to distribute prize admission tickets to The Big E. Thanks to Lynn for providing the location and the refreshments. Thanks to Lynn, Jim Craig, Tammy Ely, Bonnie Isman, Sue San Soucie, John Ramsay and Jan Resnick for providing the labor. Big E tickets have been a staple of Summer Reading Program prizes for several years. Eighty-four main libraries and branches each received a pair of tickets for the fair.

The Big E is the largest fair in the northeast and is a New England extravaganza with top name entertainment, The Big E Super Circus, the Avenue of States, Storrowton Village Museum, animals, competitive exhibits, rides, shopping, crafts, a daily parade and a Mardi Gras parade and foods from around the world. The fair runs for 17 days each September. In 2010, over 1,228,418 people attended The Big E.

This Big E ticket distribution was made possible by the Western MA Library Advocates working to support library services in Western Massachusetts and a generous donation by The BIG E.
