We're always looking for volunteers to help us mow the lawn.
Contact David Burrous if you'd like to join us.
We owe a debt of gratitude to the members who turned out to work on the grounds and landscaping on Saturday. Way to go team!
Due to the fact that the weather forecast for this Saturday, May 21st, is: low 34, high 47, with a little morning snow, we have decided to postpone the Spruce-Up day to Saturday, May 28th.
A big thank you to all of the members who have volunteered to take care of our extensive new landscaping this summer. Join us if you'd like!

With the financial support of several sponsors and the skill of our weekend warrior woodworkers, we now have 11 Leopold benches to enjoy in the triangular gravel area accessed both by the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall on the north side of the building and in front of the building on the Ceres Drive side.
