A calendar raffle will also be held throughout the month of May. Beginning May 1, daily winners will be drawn for the corresponding calendar prize of products, services and cash. Raffle tickets are $25 each and will be available until May 28.

The Mae Day Foundation, founded in memory of Jamestowner Maegan Harpool, is dedicated to providing financial support to students entering college

and to worthy community projects. This focus exemplifies Maegan's lifelong involvement in community service, which began in the Girl Scouts, the Jamestown Youth Organization, and continued through high school in the Interact Club.

The foundation organizers hope to raise $30,000 by May 28, which will establish enough funds to provide annual college scholarships on a continuing basis. Call Kim Harpool at 996-3903.
