Having attended more than one successful fundraiser on behalf of the Rimbey Municipal Library, and having participated in a few of the special events this librarian has organized for the community, I am beyond baffled by the claims made by a former town councillor Dave Karroll regarding Jean Keetch.
It causes me to question the veracity of most everything else he writes. Jean has deep historical roots in the community, and I know her to be sincere and hard working. Indeed, many of her hours are volunteer ones, in support of a vision that benefits us all. In light of that kind of commitment and hard work, who in his right mind would attribute such work to a selfish ego?
Sadly, Mr. Karroll, you come across to me as one who is packing a heavy load of sour grapes.
Meanwhile, I will continue to attend the theatrical and musical events the library folks arrange; I will continue to support the occasional event in the comfortable setting of the library; and I may even read a book.
I invite you to join me.
