Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. – Matthew 24:32

 Mowing Volunteers Needed! All season!
The Building & Grounds (B&G) needs your help keeping our grass looking great. We have two good riding mowers, so you can either sign up to do it yourself (around 3.5 hours) or partner with someone (under 2 hours). The signup sheet is on the table in front of the office window. B&G will send you a complete schedule and additional instructions. IF you have not done this before, someone from B&G will be glad to meet with you to go over the operation of the mowers and answer any questions.
