Mulch Madness!


The church is planning a community-wide service and social gathering on Saturday, May 18th that we are affectionately calling the
Let's Make Our Grounds Look MuLch Better Day. It has been several years since the grounds have had a fresh layer of mulch applied.  So on Saturday morning, May 18th, we invite everyone who would like to help spread some mulch around to show up at the church at 9:00am with wheel barrows, shovels and rakes, and clothes you can get grubby in, and pitch in for a few hours beautifying our landscaping.  Many hands make light work, so we would like to invite all teams to join in the fun, plus family members!  If we start at 9:00 with a big group, we are bound to be done quickly and have the whole rest of the day to relax!


And if there are folks who aren't so crazy about spreading mulch around, but would like to serve on the "Mulch Support Team," we could use helpers to provide water and goodies (suitable for serving outdoors) to keep our laborers hydrated and nourished.
