Here's an idea. How about a fun evening where you get to make your own wood sign and help a great organization all at once? Good idea, right? And it's actually happening Thursday night.

The DIY Wood Sign Fundraiser for People's Place will be Thursday evening from 6:30 pm - 9 pm at Cup-Corks and Canvas by Heather Meyer at 721 Broadway in Kingston. Each participant will choose either a 12 x 12 gingerbread sign or a 24 x 6 family sign. You will get several paint and stains to choose from to personalize your creation.

Tickets are $50 per person and include everything needed to paint, a stencil, your first holiday beverage, appetizers and a cupcake. Additional drinks are available for a $5 donation. Today is the last day to reserve a spot, so act now because tickets will not be sold at the door. To reserve a spot and see the designs, visit the facebook page.
