St. James City Civic Association Off to an Early Start!
The SJCCA hosts monthly membership meetings at 7:00 p.m. on the third Monday of each month, October through April. We have entertaining and informative speakers at each meeting. Come early and  take advantage of the pot luck dinner prior to the meeting at 6:00 p.m. Become a member of the SJCCA, see the membership link above. You can join at any meeting.
SJCCA has many annual events that the Pine Island community has supported and looks forward to each year. In November we have our Fall Festival. Begin your day with a hearty breakfast, enjoy browsing and buying at the rummage sale and flea market.  Individual vendors are invited to sell their wares as well. The Spring Festival  (date to be announced)follows the same format as the Fall Festival. Remember, don't throw away those well-used treasures. We'll be happy to take them off your hands to sell at the Rummage sale. Proceeds from our festivals and our delicious home-cooked holiday dinner help with the maintenance and upkeep of the facility as well as affording us the opportunity to  financially assist many charitable programs on Pine Island.
