St. Boniface talent on display
This month, the Watercolor Group will have all new artwork on display in the Parish Hall!  Most pieces are for sale, with a portion of the sale supporting the ministries of St. Boniface Church -- thanks to the generosity of the artists.   Elsewhere in the community, the Group will have paintings on display at Burns Court Cafe and Wine Bar during the month of October, starting October 7. The cafe is located at 401 South Pineapple Avenue.
