Our selection reception was held on January 26, 2020, and was a great success. We would like to thank The Friends of the Library for the delicious owl themed treats, the Reed Street Bottle Shop for some delicious wine, and The National Bank of Coxsackie for providing a great venue for the event. We have 41 owls to be painted this year, and all of the sponsors have made their selections. We look forward to seeing all of the completed owls for Memorial Day weekend!

The Owl and the Chickadee, created by Sharon Lalor Askew, was our single owl for 2019, and was raffled off in December 2019 to raise funds for the 2020 What a Hoot! Festival.
