Building & Grounds Improvement Day, Saturday, February 25 from 9 AM into the early afternoon. Larger projects will focus on cleaning and repairing the sanctuary chairs, and consolidating and organizing the Sextons' supplies, organizing the basement, and general cleaning. We also plan to rehang loose radiator covers, so any efforts that can be offered by those with carpentry skills or interest in helping will be appreciated.
Please come and participate for any amount of time you can. If you are new to the church, these improvement days are good opportunities to get to know people by working alongside them. Children are welcome. Lunch will be provided for those who stay. Please sign up on the poster in the lobby so we have an idea how many volunteers to expect.
Contact Dan Chase with questions or ideas for other projects at 799-9087 or email@example.com.
