Givins Irish Castle fundraiser

I'm sure that most or all of you are familiar with Beverly's most famous landmark, the Beverly Unitarian Church, commonly known as the Irish castle. It's one of our most distinctive buildings, and 130+ years of weather haven't been kind to it.  The turrets are in tough shape, and expensive restoration work is needed to keep this special place around. Read more here.

BAPA has a good piece about the restoration campaign and why it's needed.

Here's a link for the online fundraiser page. Let's all make a difference to help save it. Every little bit counts.

There's a storytelling performance tonight at 7 pm featuring David Boyle.
$20 donation befits the restoration of the Castle

Here's a link for info on tonight's performance and other upcoming fundraising events.
