Local photographers Lisa Crowley of Jeffersonton and Joanie Jenkins of Rixeyville were winners of a photography contest held by the Jefferson Ruritan Club earlier this year. The award was having their photographs published in the Jefferson Ruritan’s 2014 fund-raising spiral-bound wall calendar with a photo credit, and a free calendar.
Copies of the calendar can be purchased for $10 at the Jefferson Ruritan’s Friday Night Turkey Shoots and their monthly Breakfast Buffets at the Jeffersonton Community Center. Proceeds will go to charitable and community service projects.
The calendar features photographs of the Amissville, Jeffersonton, and Rixeyville areas. Photographs were taken by local photographers Cory Carter of Reva, Joanie Jenkins of Rixeyville, and Lisa Crowley, Kim Jefferson, and two members of the Jefferson Ruritan Club who requested their names be with-held from this post, all of Jeffersonton.
Some calendar pages are sponsored by local businesses. Dates are pre-marked with reminders of anticipated Ruritan events such as the Groundhog Day Dinner, monthly breakfast buffets, Turkey Shoots, craft/yard sales, and club meetings.
The calendar, is a result of the club’s efforts to find new fund-raising and community service ideas. The calendar sales may become an annual tradition.
