Chamber of Commerce gearing up for annual Back-to-School Fair

JACKSONVILLE — Preparations are underway for the Ninth Annual Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce Ninth Annual Children’s Back-to-School Fair to be held on August 5, 2014.

Based on last year’s attendance and with the projected increase in student enrollment, we are planning to help about 700 children and their families. Your support and donation of school supplies or money are vital.

To help these children we need to raise money, and your assistance is needed.  

This year the Back to School Committee is hosting a Bingo and Auction at Tomato Fest on Saturday, June 14. This inaugural fundraising event will be from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Norman Activity Center.

We are in need of Bingo prizes and auction items. Business owners can help us by providing items from their business or gift cards.

Individuals and families can also help by donating tools, art work, handcrafts, and other interesting items. Your donations are needed by June 5th to help us prepare.  Donation receipts are available for your

tax records.

Please bring auction and bingo items to the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, 526 East Commerce Street, Jacksonville or call 903-586-2217.  For information please contact Fr. Mark Kusmirek at 903-258-3911 or email to pastor@oloschurch.com.
