Wondering what to get for those “hard to buy for” family or friends? The Gathering Place has a gift that is perfect for those who live near and far – notecards picturing Abington businesses and scenes. Three community organizations, The Gathering Place, ABPA, and the Abington Heights Civic League, are selling “Our Town” notecards to raise funds for the Abington Heights Students Art Scholarships.
The “Our Town” notecards were created by local artist Shirley Wagner Eagen and are attractive pastel images of Abington businesses and locations. Pictured on each set of 12 notecards are a collection of local buildings including the Waverly Deli, Everything Natural, Our Lady of Snows Church, the library, post office and others. Mrs. Eagen is committed to giving back to her community and encouraging young artists, so all funds raised by the sale of the postcards will go toward scholarship money for senior students at Abington.
The students’ art work will be exhibited at The Gathering Place in February and scholarships will be awarded at a reception on February 8.
Notecards are on sale for $15 at local businesses, the library and at The Gathering Place. Anyone wishing to purchase these cards and benefit local students may call Anne at 570-881-7612 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
