My Mother, My Confidence!
January 19, 2012
Regards: Helping to coordinate a service project Saturday, January 21, 2012 from 10:00 to 12:00 noon.
I have been looking around the property and I see there are piles of pavers and bricks that were used for the rose gardens and such, all mixed into the gardens and lawns. When they tore up the property for the roads they tore everything up! There are also sticks and trash all over the property. I would like to get it cleaned up and ready for the early spring planting and gardening and that we would not have to deal with trash and bricks in the gardens. We also will need to do a little clean up in the new building too.
So I put out a note to St. Pat’s and I have about 12 people coming 6 adults and 6 eighth graders (maybe more)! They will come from 10-12 and end at noon with Hot Chocolate!! Is anyone free to help me supervise and assist our volunteers? I need some help coordinating them and making sure we use those two hours and all that man/child power to our best advantage.
We also need help to plan to put in a small retaining wall on the east side of the parking lot in front of the new building! If you have any ideas or think you know how we might do it ourselves before the winter snows melt and the spring rains come down, please tell us!! HELP!! It is steeper then we thought and for sure it will be a muddy mess if we don’t do something soon! Thanks!
May the good Lord and all the garden and lawn Angels be with us! Teresa
