Do I look good in royal red? or is it purple?




One of the most awesome moments of my life.....being sworn in and serving on the Board of Trustees at the Library! I wasn't able to read any blogs yesterday because I was reading my board packet and preparing to wear my crown, robe with ermine and practicing how to carry my scepter!!! Really, that is how large an honor this is for me!!! 94 people voted for me!!! There were a total of 106 people that voted....I ran unopposed, so 94 was a GREAT number! Only one other candidate got more votes...96....wonder who I ticked off? I told Steve to stand further back so I didn't look so fat in the picture where the 3 of us newbies are standing actually repeating the oath!!!!

Should we now address you as Madam Trustee?

Jennie said...

Congratulations Rosemary, very nice.

gina said...

First of all, you are NOT fat! People, she is Miss Skinny Minny these days and looks fabulous, and I told her so last night! Secondly, I kept waiting for someone to come get me to take the "official" board photo, and no one did, and then I found out I missed the swearing in and everything! I was so bummed!

Congratulations, Madame Trustee! You aren't fat. If I took your body and put my head on it - no one would be able to tell who was who. (and I'm not fat, am I? So there!)

I suppose your main responsibility will be to say SSSSHHHHH to all those people who insist on talking loudly in the Library?

Sounds like you've got a lot of admirers (and a few who have no sense, right?) Enjoy your position - don't abuse your authority (is there a way to abuse authority on the Board of Trustees at a Library????)

Michele sent me today - congrats on being SOTD!!!

*whew* I thought that was you up in front of a parole board, Rosemary. I was wondering what your bail would be...
