While practicing PT, Sharon and her husband,Ted, along with their 9 month old daughter left Long Island, NY and purchased the Bernerhof Inn in 1977, knowing the MWV was where they wanted to raise their family. This was the first of many entrepreneur projects they pursued as their family grew to four children. She continued to practice PT in 1980’s and helped start Children Unlimited.  Now her children are all grown, and live all over the country.  Fortunately one family is here and her attention is on her many grandchildren. Family first!  
Sharon values the sense of community that she has here in the Valley. Ted and she co-chaired the Capital Campaign Committee for the first phase of MWVTA Rec Path. Sharon enjoys nature and the outdoors to include biking, walking, gardening and snowshoeing all from her backyard!

She has many interests including knitting, reading and sewing, but cooking remains high on her list. Sharon and Ted have always enjoyed the adventures of travel and continue to do so, but always enjoy coming home.A long time patron and supporter of the library, late in 2020 Sharon joined the Pope Memorial Public Library as the Chair of the Capital Campaign and late in 2021 she joined the board.

As time went on, she became a board member holding different offices including treasurer and president. After a hiatus she returned to the board in 2021 as the treasurer. Her background in finance and human resources have helped the library grow and transition from a small library to the wonderful institution it is today.

Member Neill Osgood

 

Neill is proud to hold Life Membership card #91, having been a patron of the Library since primary school, . The library was an integral part of life in the Osgood home. A particularly fond childhood memory he shares with his brother Charlie was the family tradition that every Friday afternoon was the “Library & Laundry” trip to town. Their parents, Charles and Patricia, would take turns, one would stay at the Seavey St. Laundromat putting through the week’s wash (book in hand of course) while the other would walk several blocks with the brothers to the NCPL to choose their books for the week to come!

Over the last 20 years Neill has enjoyed volunteering and serving on the Boards of a variety of non-profits, including 12 years as a Trustee for his alma mater The White Mountain School in Bethlehem NH.

After graduating from White Mountain he went on to earn a B.A. in psychology from Plymouth State University. Serving on the Library Board is particularly meaningful to Neill as he’s following in his Father’s footsteps; Charles served for 24 years on the NCPL Board of Directors and Committee of Donated Funds.
