PAINTINGS OF ST. JAMES:
Our own Jerry Keelen has created beautiful paintings of the St. James building, and they are available for purchase at the suggested price of $35. There are two paintings left, and they sell out fast, so please consider purchasing one for your home!
As we close this year and begin a new one, please keep the St. James Fair in mind. As you come across items of some value that you don't use or like; please set them aside for our September event. If you or someone you know is downsizing or settling an estate,keep us in mind. All donations will receive a tax receipt. Carol and Jerry have pledged areal live boat to the fair! Such items create excitement and visibility for the event. Another need is storage space, if you can hold your donations until September great; if not, we are looking for free or cheap storage space so we can collect enough donations to meet or beat a $10,000 goal. Please feel free to reach out to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's to the next 150 years of St. James!
