At their last monthly meeting the Walpole Library Trustees were presented with a check for $10,000 from the Estate of Mary Leonard. Executor, Frank Tarantino indicated that she had also requested that, in addition to the Library, donations be made to the Keene State College Music and Disabilities departments and the Fall Mountain Scholarship Fund.
Mary worked at KSC until she was 82 in the Aspire Program. She still had 12 music students when she passed in February. Walpole was her family and she remembered the area with her generosity.
