Wilton Library’s executive director Elaine Tai-Lauria receives a generous donation of $1,200 from Mitch Ancona, of Ancona’s Wines & Liquors of Wilton and Ridgefield, who recently hosted the First Annual Branchville Charity Bocce Tournament.  Holding the trophy is Michael Crystal (husband of Janet Crystal, marketing communications manager for the library). He headed up the first place team, Wilton Library Bocce Brawlers, which included Jon Waxberg (husband of Anita Waxberg, processing and circulation assistant for the library), Justin Bartholomew and Jeff Hancock (both employees of Ancona’s).  There were eight nonprofit teams that competed in the round-robin tournament.
