Spring Work Day

About Spring Work Day -- Saturday April 26, 2014

Grace's Spring Workday - this will be on opportunity for members of Grace to give back to the broader community.  We will be preparing and serving a noon meal at Margaret's house, sending a group to the Feed Nova Scotia warehouse, and a group to work on the Park Street community garden and around the outdoor oven. 

We are also wondering if anyone might be interested in helping spring clean the garden of an elderly congregational member. 

Monetary donations towards supplies can also be made. Simply mark your donation -- Work Day.
