When I am asked why Belles Lettres does not observe the tradition of its founders from the 1800'a I say, " Oh, but we do" .  If you consider tradition, wearing hats and gloves to a tea, we miss the boat. But if you look at the proactive forward thinking ladies as the ones whose concern for our area helped establish the library in Oil City, even providing thousands of books for our readers, then we have enhanced our inheritance.  We have continued supporting the library for over one hundred years and are presently enriching its offerings with the latest technology.

Thus , the essence of what Belles Lettres stands for is "a way of thinking or acting."  We, in 2016, continue this tradition with our library support and our benevolence program.  We demonstrate our care and concern each meeting as we contribute to these organizations.  I thank you, as always, and look forward to working with you this year and sharing our blessings of friendship and community.


Sincerely,

Dorothy Hajdu, President
