Dear Kingston and local area residents:

We are a small group of local citizens who work to maintain and make available the special building known as the Church on the Plains, located on 151 Main Street. This building is very near and dear to our hearts and although it no longer serves as an active church, this local historic landmark is a venue that is leased for concerts, weddings, ecumenical services, and other local activities. The regular maintenance and repair of this historic building rely strictly on fundraisers and donations from the general public & visitors. Your generous donations have helped raise the necessary funds to replace our front stairway and we are halfway to our goal of adding a ramp for improved accessibility. Our plan is awaiting final town approval and we will break ground in the spring. Our fundraising efforts must continue for this town landmark, because now we need to replace the roof!

Through the support and assistance of our local businesses, we are presenting our annual Holiday Giveaway Calendar – a 31 day raffle of great prizes ranging from gift certificates to your favorite local eateries, auto repair, landscaping, free golf, and even a pair of “behind-home-plate” Red Sox tickets (let’s hope for a better season eh? ). The combined prize value is over $1,500.00 and for a small contribution of $10.00, you will be entered into the opportunity to win one or more prizes!! If you win once, we re-enter your name for more chances to win!!

To purchase a raffle calendar, you can contact Jon Beebe @ 642-7323, you can visit our website at www.churchontheplains.org and purchase online using our PayPal account, or print off a copy of the calendar on-line and mail a check payable to K.I.H.S to: K.I.H.S – 2012 Holiday Raffle, PO Box 663, Kingston, NH 03848
