  • Celebrating the Season with Community


    In what has become a company tradition since moving the office to Grafton in 2013, JCSI will be a featured "Frosty Stop" as part of the town's annual community celebration, Grafton Celebrates the Holidays, which will be held this Sunday, Dec. 6 with much of the festivities taking place on or near Grafton Common.

    The event will include ice sculpting, crafts for children, and refreshments as local businesses and community groups open their doors and join in celebrating the spirit of the season. JCSI will offer guests a children's craft activity, refreshments, and tours of the decorated Fisher Mansion.
