  • The Hampstead Public Library is raffling an Astronaut Bear to raise money for their Garden Path Project. The prize is a 15” honey-furred bear from the Vermont Teddy Bear Company. 

    Tickets are $1 each or $5 for six tickets. Proceeds go toward design and implementation of a safe pathway to the Storybook Garden behind the Library. The drawing is on July 20th, the same day as the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.
