Sprucing Up! We always want to put the best foot forward. Kim and I clean and tidy up our house when we know we have company coming. We want to put our best foot forward as a church for our 60th Anniversary Celebration in October. So we want to tidy up our church. We are scheduling three Spruce Days: August 31, September 14, and September 28. We will start each day at 8:00 am (you may come at 7:45 am for donuts and coffee), and we are targeting to finish each day around noon (you may stay a little longer for pizza).

The following are what we will be doing: * Paint the eave by church office * Paint the eave by Fellowship Hall entrance * Build a fence around dumpster * Put metal edging and mulch in planter by office windows * Paint doors facing small courtyard area by Fellowship Hall * Paint eave in front of the Nursery area * Paint exterior wall of Nursery area * Paint backside of the auditorium * Paint bottom part of the foyer area Children, youth and adult Sunday school classes are also supposed to clean up/tidy up their classrooms by October 6. We dare not expect the babies and toddlers to clean their rooms! We need your expertise/your muscles/your help. It will be fun getting these done for our anniversary. Bring paint brushes, rollers, and other tools. Come join the fun!
