Preston Superstore Donates to St. Helen's New Enrichment Center
Pat Preston, owner of Preston Superstore in Burton, made a donation to representatives of St. Helen Church in Newbury. The donation was part of the funds St. Helen Church raised at their annual Fall Extravaganza, held November 17, at LaMalfa Party Center in Mentor. Mark Nolan from WMJI 105.7 and a Burton resident served as the celebrity guest and master of ceremonies for the Fall Extravaganza. The funds raised this year, including the donation from Preston, will help create a multi-use center for the arts and spiritual enrichment for children and adults. The space began as a dairy barn more than 100 years ago and then became St. Helen Church in 1949. When St. Helen dedicated a new church in 2008, the old church/dairy barn was used for school groups and spiritual enrichment with programs for men and women. The new funds raised will help refurbish the building, patch the roof, replace the flooring and more.
