Last year I bought a Christmas Ornament of “The Gray Ghost” done by Mort Kunstler, as a fundraiser for Timber Ridge School in Winchester, VA. Mr. Kunstler’s work is beautiful and I can’t recommend enough that you go to the www.timber-ridge-school.org and buy one of these wonderful Civil War ornaments.
The special ornament for 2011 is “Mrs. Jackson comes to Winchester”. This is the 16th year that the School has been producing an ornament and the 15th year the School has been partnering with Mr. Kunstler. Every dollar raised from the sale of the ornaments goes to Timber Ridge School for at-risk boys.
The Gray Ghost (last year’s ornament) was John S. Mosby, a Confederate Cavalryman, 1833-1916. A limited supply of previous years’ ornaments are available on the website.Please consider enhancing your own Christmas by helping this school in their endeavors. I assure you that you will enjoy your ornament for years to come. I know I am!
