FPDS Holiday Potpourri postponed until November, weather cited

Jackson, Miss, - October 23, 2019 - First Presbyterian Day School will host its annual fundraiser, Holiday Potpourri, on Friday, November 1, 2019, in the home of Laura and Tommy Stansell in the Eastover neighborhood of Jackson. This 45th annual event will be a festive day of food, shopping, and fellowship from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Originally planned for October 25, the event has been postponed one week due to forecasted weather.

Guests will enjoy the traditional Bountiful Bakery, Garden and Gift Gallery, and Silent Auction. Local restaurants return for the enticing Tasting Tea (10 a.m. to 1 p.m.), and FPDS students in the Honor Choir program is scheduled to perform. Event patrons will have the opportunity to tour the Stansell home and grounds.

Since 1974, Holiday Potpourri has provided critical support in enhancing our children’s education, including the building remodel and development of our preschool, continued upgrades in technology for our classrooms, and a state-of-the-art science lab. Funds raised from the 2019 event will support the First Presbyterian Church Gymnatorium and Classroom Project.

While Holiday Potpourri has expanded and changed over the years, its mission remains the same – to support FPDS as it plants seeds of Christlikeness in the hearts of children while providing quality academic education.

Already-purchased tickets are good for the new date. Event tickets may still be purchased for $10 from FPDS students, at the school, or the day of the event. Each ticket is also an entry into a $1,000 cash raffle. For more information, please call 601-355-1731 or visit www.holidaypotpourri.org.

First Presbyterian Day School is an independent, Christian, elementary school that serves approximately 675 students in grades K3 through sixth. With a mission that began in 1965 and continues today, FPDS strives to plant seeds of Christlikeness in the hearts of children; pursue excellence in academics; and prepare students for future service in God’s kingdom in their homes, churches, and professions.
