Phone directory helps local projects
The Junior Women's Club of Jamestown would like everyone in the town to know we are working with the Jamestown Press to publish the 2009-2010 Jamestown Telephone Directory.
The telephone directory has become a Jamestown tradition and is mailed to every postal patron in Jamestown each year.
All of the proceeds from our directory are used by the Women's Club to fund a number of local projects.
Here's a sampling of our local charitable efforts from the past year:
• Sponsorship of girls' softball and girls' soccer teams.
• Donation to Jamestown Emergency Medical Services.
• Host of the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Egg Toss.
• Donation to the Rocket Hogs for the Fourth of July fireworks.
• Support of youth recreational activities.
• Co-sponsorship of the Village Christmas Tree Lighting, providing hot chocolate and treats for the event.
• Scholarships for graduating Jamestown high school seniors.
• Donation to the fifth grade Rooster Games.
• Sponsor of the Music and Art Award (Marc Frade annual Art Scholarship) and Excellence in Foreign Language Award for graduating eighth graders.
• Sponsor of Adopt-AFamily program at Christmas.
• Sponsor Project Adventure, a trip to Alton Jones for sixth graders.
• Sponsor of the annual Seaside Family Cruise at Ft. Getty.
• Donation to Friends of the Seniors.
• Donations to the Jamestown Teen Center.
• Donation of computer to Jamestown Meal Site.
