“I lift up my eyes to the hills— where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2

On Friday, October 13, First Presbyterian Day School will host its annual fundraising event at the home of Cherry and Ted Duckworth located in Jackson, Mississippi.  Make plans now to attend Holiday Potpourri 2017 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 to support the building remodel and development of the FPDS preschool.
