The Bring Your Own Talent (BYOT) project invites Jubilants to create their own fundraisers to support Jubilee! now through the end of September. No rules, no guidelines, just whatever you enjoy making or doing that can raise money for Jubilee!  Baking, crafting, classes, workshops, concerts. Anything goes. If you need a table to sell your wares on Sundays, want to hold an event at 46 Wall Street, would like to see your project on this web page and in our newsletter, or make a JIA announcement at Sunday Celebration, just email Michele Bernhardt at and she'll help make that happen.  You can also post about your BYOT projects yourself in the Jubilee! Community Bulletin Board on Facebook.
