Townsend children name library mascot
The Mary E. Tippitt Memorial Library in Townsend held a contest in November to name their new mascot. The winning name for the large stuffed bear was “Tippy.” The three winners were Andrew Carter, Joseph Millsaps, and Tera Vilaire. Each winner received a coupon for a large pizza courtesy of Townsend’s Pizza Hut and store manager Chris Henry. Thanks to all the children who entered the contest and to Pizza Hut for providing the prizes.
