Alex and I are thrilled to be a part of the first annual St. Joe River Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K
this Sunday, June 12th. The Paperhouse — as well as several other local businesses — will be open the day of the race and will be celebrating with fun promotions and tons of great sale prices.

The centerpiece of our special opening will be a visit from one of our favorite local authors, Travis Griffith. Griffith’s first book, a children’s story, Your Father Forever (makes a fantastic Father’s Day gift) will be available.
Be sure to also stop in for our “Beat Devon to The Paperhouse” promotion. I’ll be running the half-marathon (which starts at 8:15 a.m.), and anyone who stops by before I finish and spends $50 or more will receive 20% off his or her entire order.The best part … I’m super slow, so you’ll have LOTS of time to take advantage of this promotion.
A portion of the entire day’s sales will be donated to the St. Maries Foundation for Education, a local non-profit organization dedicated to supplementing local schools with extra funding, something that couldn’t be more important – or timely – considering the budget shortfalls and cuts that are sure to affect our schools.
Lots of great stuff going on during a very exciting day for our community. If you’re in the area, we’d love to have you stop by and check us out.
