The snow is melting, and while the outdoor courses are muddy, the greens at the sixth Annual Howel Mini Golf Classic will be dry and ready for play. On Saturday night from 7 to 10pm, adults tee off for 18 holes of mini golf and enjoy the 19th hole—tasty hors d’oeuvres plus wine and beer—all for $50 (all participants must be at least 21 years old). Door prizes will be drawn with great offerings from Cape Air, Simon Pearce, Candela Tapas Lounge, and Carpenter & Main Restaurant.
Space is limited. Tickets are on sale now and will be on sale the night of the party if space is available. Call Michelle at (603) 640-3260 about availability.
New this year, while you enjoy an evening of fun, kids can have a night out all their own at a Pajama Party for ages 5 to 12! Children will be treated to music and stories with Gary Barton and Ali Price, crafts (origami, collage, and clay), LEGO play, yummy snacks, and a movie. Kids are encouraged to wear their PJs and bring sleeping bags/blankets, pillows, and stuffies! The cost is $15 per child.
The Howel Open
On Sunday March 20 from 11am to 4pm, bring your friends and family to the Howel Open for 18 holes of indoor mini golf, pizza, burritos, and treats from the café, plus door prizes. The cost is just $5 per person.
“I especially love the Howel Classic because it’s more than a fundraiser—it’s also a ‘friend-raiser’ for the Howe,” says Mary White, Director of the Howe Library. “This special event, held in mid March when we are all suffering from cabin fever, is a fun way to discover the hidden nooks and crannies of the building.
“People might not be able to contribute to our annual appeal or purchase tickets for the Saturday Night fundraiser, but we know they love the Howe, and this is one way we can express our appreciation to them for the many ways they do support us—with their tax dollars, with their positive comments about the Howe, and with their frequent visits to partake of our many programs and services. More than 360 people attended last year’s Sunday event, and I hope we can reach 400 this year,” says Mary.
