My Friend

Let me tell you about my friend Jay Whitney. Whether it is fundraising for the Go Bo Foundation, Write On, Door County, Secret Santa, or for someone in need in our community, Jay has always been one of the first to say “yes” and share his talent of music to raise funds. This past year Jay suffered a stroke that has left him unable to work, or do the thing he loves  – play music. On Dec. 8, Terry Lundahl and a group of volunteers hosted a concert and silent auction at the Kress Pavilion, music provided by Dorthy Scott and the Peacemakers, and auction items from local artists and businesses. The proceeds went to our friend, Jay. It was truly a beautiful outpouring of what a loving and caring community we live in. 

If you find yourself blessed with a little extra this holiday season, please stop by your favorite grocery store or gas station and pick up a gift card and send it to Fountain of Fellowship P.O. Box 521, Baileys Harbor, WI. 54202. We will make sure Santa delivers it on time for Christmas. May you all have a loving holiday season.
