Thank You to Spring Planting Volunteers

May 23, 2017

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the Spring Planting on May 20th, including all the church members who were there, church staff, community volunteers, members of Grace Assembly 51 (brought by Shelia Francis), and all the volunteers from St. Charles School. Thanks to Ciara Ball for being our Gardens Coordinator and to Violet Jackson for working on volunteer recruitment. We appreciated the help, and with the number of volunteers we had this year, work was done much more quickly.

A reminder that tomorrow (Saturday, May 20th) is our annual Spring Planting around the church and Bakhita Center (648 South Ohio Ave., Columbus).

Flower pick up will start at 8:30, so we should have flowers available to plant starting at about 9 am. Please meet in the backyard of the Bakhita Center.

We will continue until at least 11 am, and maybe later depending on how much help we have.

Please bring your own gardening gloves and tools if you have them. We will provide some snacks and refreshments.

Thanks to Nationwide Children’s Hospital for donating flowers and mulch and to Old Oaks Civic Association for sharing their order with us.
