Area Organizations Offer Vendor Opportunities
Jamaica Benefit Association
The Jamaica Benefit Association is sponsoring a Tag Sale on the grounds of the Masonic Hall on Saturday, September 29, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Participants are sought; the cost is $20 per table (bring your own). Space is limited; to reserve space call Ginny at 802-297-1048. The Jamaica Benefit Association was founded in 1914 by a group of women who sold their hand-made goods to raise money for charitable causes. The group is responsible for the first sidewalks and salt-resistant trees on Jamaica’s Main Street. They recently donated children’s books to the Jamaica Library, and outdoor gym equipment to the Village School. They coordinate with Senior Solutions to make the monthly Community Luncheons a success. They also donate each year to the Food Bank, and if money allows, to the Fire and Rescue. They also sponsor a yearly essay contest for the Jamaica graduating class, and give a Certificate of Good Citizenship to children who volunteer at the Community Luncheon.
