We are gearing up for the St. James Fair in September! Take some time during these dreary winter days to go through your house and find treasures for the Fair. If you haven't touched it since the last Fair, it should be donated! We have a boat and some estate items pledged already. All items will receive a tax receipt. Buying a new car? Your old one may be more valuable as a donation; consult your tax professional. Stuff makes the sale, people make it fun. Let your friends and family know about the sale; it is a great opportunity to introduce new people to "The Little Stone Church with the Warm Heart."
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.
