Art Sale - Last Christmas Eve at Schwalm Church

Last Christmas Eve at Schwalm's Church

The JSHA Board of Directors has authorized Mr. David R. Kessler, an artist from Lykens, PA, to directly sell Schwalm Church prints at the 2018 Annual Meeting with a portion of each sale donated to JSHA. The church was last used in 2010 and has since been torn down. The story of the church is published in the 1986 Journal. The print will be entitled “Last Christmas Eve at Schwalm’s Church, Fearnot, PA 2010”. JSHA will also provide a letter with each print to explain the history of church in relationship to the Schwalm family. Each print will be hand signed and unframed.

The print is available in two sizes and two prices. The 10 X 13-inch print will fit in a standard 11 X 14- inch frame and sells for $30.00. The 12 X 16-inch print with a foam back will fit in 12 X 16-inch frame and sells for $60.00. These prices include all PA Sales taxes

Prints must be preordered by October 15th by contacting President Ross Schwalm at PAHESSIAN@GMAIL.COM or cell 571-330-2745. Please indicate size and quantity. Pick up will be at the Annual Meeting. Payment can be made in check to JSHA or via Pay Pal on the website.
