Church Yard Work: Help Needed!
The fall is rapidly approaching and a perfect time to have a good workout and fun time finishing up the church yard work for the year. Come and join others (at a safe distance), talk to each other as well accomplishing the yard work.
On September 19th from 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM, bring your pruning shears, lobbers and rakes to help with cleaning up a number of areas in the back of the church. Jeff Meicher has done considerable work at the church this summer and he will coordinate the work that needs to be done. Close to the church, the bushes need to be trimmed, weeds pulled and mulch put down. The areas that frame the parking lot along Hegg Ave and Lake Edge Blvd need weeds and other unwanted plants removed and mulched. Any amount that you can do is welcomed. The rain date will be the next day, September 20th at the same times.
On October 24th, from 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM, gather at church to rake the leaves. Please bring rakes and other supplies you might need. Again Jeff Meicher will coordinate the activities. The rain date will be the next day, October 25 th at the same times.
Be sure to bring your own water and snacks. Unfortunately because of COVID 19, no refreshments will be served. Thanks to all who have been working on the yard this summer and to all of you who will participate this fall.
