The five athletes from our Rhythmic Gymnastics club heading to Nationals decided to show their appreciation to St.Paul's Church for generously providing them additional practice space so they offered to help out at their Christmas Bazaar. They were permitted to set up a Jar to help raise money for the Butterflies heading to the 2018 summer games.
