On Saturday, December 8th @ 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m, the St. Paul’s Youngish Adults will be participating in the East End Cemetery Clean Up. This event was coordinated by Chris Graham.

The East End Cemetery is “the final resting place of an estimated 13,000 people, among them some of the most prominent black Richmonders of the turn of the 20th century.” However, due to “decades of neglect,” many of their graves have become obfuscated by trash, weeds, and other refuse.

You can make a difference, like the small bands of committed volunteers who have begun cleaning up the cemetery, by joining us for a few hours to untangle vines and uncover valuable Richmond history! Plus, stay afterwards to go and get some pizza and/or a beverage with us at Triple Crossing in Fulton!

Please Save the Date for this season’s Winter Ball, to benefit and raise funds for our youth and youngish adult programs at the church. More details about this fabulous yearly event are forthcoming, but in the meantime, we are seeking donations of time & talent to make it all happen! Read on for some ideas from our Winter Ball co-chairs …

Would you like to host a dinner at your house? Do you have a piece of art or a craft you’ve created? Or maybe you have professional services you provide? In all of these cases, you can help the winter ball committee! Every year, the winter ball raises money for our youth and young adult programming and pilgrimages, and one way we raise money is through a Silent Auction.

Examples of some of these services or items might be:

  • A gift basket (Pinterest has lots of good ideas if you’re stumped!)
  • Flower arranging or photography for an event
  • Piano lessons (or swimming lessons, or horseback riding lessons, or Spanish lessons, or…)
  • Preparing homemade brunch for 4
  • Giftcards to a restaurant, brewery/winery/cidery, or coffee shop
  • Tickets to a show
  • A handmade quilt
  • Handiwork or lawn care
  • A commissioned painting
  • Handmade jewelry

And many more!

If you have an item or service you would like to donate for the winter ball, please contact the winter ball co-chairs Kimberly Ligon at ligon.kimberly@gmail.com or Chris West at cew2373@gmail.com.

We hope to see you there!
