Our Hard Working Crew

by Cathy Kirk | March 5, 2024 4:14 PM

Painting and landscaping was on the agenda for yesterday. The team worked so hard digging up old plants, building up and cleaning out all of the flower beds at the church.  After that was done they planted new shrubs and plants and mulched everything.  They worked faster and harder than any team I have ever seen.

The team then painted and touched up the front of the church.  What a difference they made.

Amazing Alex!
