More Summer Events: Gardens and Health Center Events

August 19, 2017

It’s been a busy, busy summer at Holy Rosary-St. John, and there are more events before summer is over!

Please join us on Saturday, August 26th from 9 am to about 2 or 3 pm as we assemble a greenhouse for the community gardens. We still need volunteers! We will be assembling a greenhouse, building shelving and grow boxes for it, weeding the flower beds, and just generally doing upkeep on the community gardens. We will be meeting behind the Bakhita Center (648 South Ohio Ave., Columbus). If students want to get a head start on their volunteering, we will have volunteer forms for hours served. Feel free to just show up or for more information or to RSVP, please email hrsjevents@gmail.com or call (614) 252-5926, ext. 7.

Also this coming week, the Order of Malta Center of Care (Health Care Center) will open on Thursday, August 24th from 9 am to 1 pm on the third floor (across from Campion Hall) of the St. John Community Center (640 South Ohio Ave., Columbus). They will be open during the same hours every second and fourth Thursday of each month after that. Next hours after the opening will be on Thursday, September 14th from 9 am to 1 pm.

Please come out and support these events! Thanks!
