Long-time Volunteer Donates Artwork to Support Jones Park

Congratulations to Nancy Zey, raffle winner of “A Flood Plain Forest,” an original watercolor by Jim Ramay.

Ramay, an artist and longtime volunteer at Jones Park, paints scenes of Jones Park and donates them to raise funds for Jesse Jones Park Volunteers, an organization supporting park operations and programs through volunteer work, fundraising, and education. When he is not painting, Ramay participates in homestead events as a historical demonstrator and regularly participates in Tai Chi at the park on Wednesday mornings.

The current JJPV raffle is for “Deer at Salad Bowl,” a 16-by-20-inch oil painting in a classic 21by-25-inch gold, wooden frame. “Deer at Salad Bowl” is on display in the Nature Center, and raffle tickets may be purchased for $2 each or $5 for three. The drawing is tentatively scheduled for Monday, August 26. Participants need not be present to win. All proceeds from raffle ticket sales received by the JJPV are used to support programs and operations at Jones Park.
