Special to the Item
The Picayune Item
The vestry of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church presented a check to Crosby Memorial Library on Saturday, December 8th.
The check represents the profits of the raffle held at the Picayune Street Fair last month. St. Paul’s holds two raffles annually with proceeds dedicated to the support of community projects.
Past recipients include the Greater Picayune Arts Council (GPAC) Art Camp and the Picayune Police Department Summer Camp. The Crosby Memorial Library was chosen as the most recent recipient because St. Paul’s parishioners expressed concern regarding reduced funding for the library, which is a vital part of our community.
Carol Phares, Library Assistant Director, received the donation and expressed appreciation saying, “What you have done for us is beyond words; it is overwhelming.”
St. Paul’s plans to continue this outreach and will hold another raffle at the Spring Street Fair in April.
St. Paul’s is located at 1421 Goodyear Blvd. Holy Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday at 10 a.m.
