I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart. Jeremiah 24:7
On Friday, October 21, First Presbyterian Day School will bring its annual fundraising event home to the Belhaven neighborhood. Make plans now to attend Holiday Potpourri 2016 at the home of Reed and Diane Hogan and the garden of Tim and Marsha Cannon on Pinehurst Street from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Guests will enjoy the traditional and fabulous Bountiful Bakery, Garden and Gift Gallery, and Silent Auction. Local restaurants return for the enticing Tasting Tea, and the FPDS Honor Choir and Strings are scheduled to perform.
Since 1974, Holiday Potpourri has provided critical support in enhancing the education of FPDS students, including a new science lab, iPads and Chromebooks for the classrooms, and an upgraded playground. This year funds are designated for improvements to the school’s performing arts equipment, including stage, sound, and lighting as well as for cosmetic improvements to the second grade halls.
Stacy Underwood, Belhaven resident and FPDS parent, will create two pieces of featured art this year, one on display at each home.
