FRA Concert: About 60 members enjoyed the soulful crooning The Voice finalist Troy Ramey and $1045 was collected to help repair the steeple at St. Phillips! Thanks to Alper C. for organizing.
Thank You Letter from St. Phillips:
The St Philips church committee and all who attend services, sincerely thank the Fortune’s Rocks Association for designating us to receive the free will offering from the wonderful summer concert on July 15th. We were extremely surprised and pleased by the amount raised. The generosity of the FRA community resulted in donations totaling an astounding $1045!!! We hope soon to have the bell ringing again, and the belfry rebuilt soon after. Thank you all for your very generous support!
Children’s Program: About a dozen children painted shells and decorated frames with shells, glass, and beads. Thank you Jacquie T. for another great event!
