Winter Social — 2/7

With Spring Fever just around the corner…the Winter Social, Jamestown PTA’s biggest fundraiser, is here!  Funds are raised for many of the things that make Jamestown special, such as the wellness efforts, technology like iPads and computers, and events such as artists and authors in residence.  The whole community is counted on to come, have fun and buy lots of great auction items! Please join us!

The PTA needs you!

With over 45 jobs already filled, many of your friends and neighbors are already volunteering for different jobs in the PTA.  We have a couple of critical positions that need to be filled.

We need volunteers in order to hold the auction and continue other important programs this year (and if no one steps up, it won’t happen!).  Please consider helping out.  The PTA is a volunteer organization, so no previous work experience is required! Read more

Earn Money For Jamestown When You Buy Groceries!

Yes, it’s really that easy!  Giant, Harris Teeter, and Safeway each donate a percentage of the money you spend on groceries.  Register or renew just once and earn money for Jamestown all year long!  Registration is free and you do not pay extra for groceries.  This program is Jamestown’s second largest fundraiser; last year we earned about $12,000 through this great program.

To sign-up, see the Jamestown Grocery Program Flyer or email your grocery card number(s), name, address, phone number, and email address to dmontesunita@yahoo.com and we will sign you up!
