With the Christmas season quickly approaching, we are always trying to find something different to give as gifts or send out to the people we care about during the holidays. I always look forward to going to the mail box and finding Christmas Cards from family and friends, it is such a heartwarming traditional way of keeping in touch with the people you care about over the holidays. If you are looking for a card that will also remind your friends of home, the St. Peter’s Community Club may have just the answer for you. The winning photos from the Community Clubs Photo Contest have been chosen and are now available as delightful winterscape cards. The Cards are $6 for a pack of six cards (one from each photographer) and 6 envelopes. This is a fundraising effort with all the proceeds donated to the Nicolas Denys Museum, in St. Peter’s. The cards are available at Jeantie's Mini-Mart, Shamrock Store, C & M Video, Home Hardware in St. Peter's, Fleur de Lis Store (Rockdale), the East Coast Credit Unions in Richmond County and St. Josephs Credit Union.
To help lessen the stress of Christmas shopping, Richmond County has some great shopping locations that will make picking that special gift item a lot easier. Some of Richmond's most sought after shopping spots are Glad Tidings the Christmas Shoppe in St. Peter’s, Lynn’s Flowers and Gifts, Mac’s Celtic Shop and Lawton’s Drug Store, Forget Me Nots Gift Shop located in St. Georges Channel, and in Petit de Grat, La Picasse gift boutique which all have a beautiful variety of Christmas gift ideas. Until next week have fun as you prepare for the holidays.
