Cool notes played for Atwater library

Byron Toben

The evening breeze caressed the trees on a fine November night for Atwater Library’s annual fundraising cocktail benefit. Jazz pianist Oliver Jones opened with a medley of classic tunes to entertain the 300 guests.

When Oliver, who grew up near the venerable institution, was not playing, Concordia prof Dave Turner and his trio provided cool notes to the chatter and tinkling. The whole was m.c.’d by the amiable Dennis Trudeau who is busy these days as he also performed such duties at the Cinemania French film fest and the RIDM (Rencontres Internationales de Documentaire de Montreal) film fest.

Westmount mayor Peter Trent and City Councilor Martin Rotrand were among the minglers. A silent auction, including popular Aislin original cartoons, raised $72,000. Atwater Library receives only 10% of its funding from government sources.
