Dismas Charities Residents From Louisville And St. Patrick Fall Out In Force For Annual St James Art Fair

Sixteen residents from Dismas Charities Louisville and St. Patrick programs came together to help set up and clean up after the internationally acclaimed St. James Art Fair in Old Louisville. To show their appreciation, the residents received meal vouchers for their three-days of assistance and snacks and drinks throughout the day in the volunteer tent. The residents also received volunteer T-shirts. “Please convey our sincere thanks to the men and women that support us during the St James Court Art Show,” said Howard Rosenberg, Executive Director of the event. “They went above and beyond. They are great representatives of Dismas, Metro Louisville, and the Art Show. We are proud to have them as part of the team. We would be lost without your support.” In late September, Louisville residents helped the 2nd Street Neighborhood Association with the Fall Magnolia Park Cleanup, an annual effort in anticipation of the art fair the following weekend. The St. James Art Fair, first held in 1957, includes over 700 artisans from various locations throughout the Americas. The show annually draws nearly 300,000 people, one-third from out-of-state.
