ST. JAMES FAIR – SEPTEMBER 18 & 19
The boat and trailer donated by Carol and Jerry was sold on Ebay, for over $1200, giving us a wonderful start to our St. James Fair! We could use some moveable shelving for this and future Fairs if you have some to donate. Moving boxes, copier paper boxes with lids,and brown paper grocery bags are needed too. We have a BEAUTIFUL full-length white fox coat by Adolfo, ladies size 18 in the sale. Look fabulous at a fraction of retail! More news as it happens! --Kevin.
Our Parish Administrator is a fountain of information about all things St. James - and is also one of the kindest, friendliest, most helpful people you could wish to meet.
