Volunteer to help with summer church lawn care. Coming soon there will be an opportunity to sign up for a summer week to mow and trim the church lawn. The church owns all of the necessary equipment and Tim Fried has agreed to provide orientation and training sessions for all volunteers. For yours and his convenience, Tim has set aside two times to do group sessions. These will be Thursday evening, May 14, 6:30 pm and Saturday morning, May 16, 9:00 am. For the safety of our volunteers and the protection of the equipment, orientation and training will be mandatory for all lawn care volunteers. If you think you would like to help with summer lawn care, please sign up for one of these sessions if you can fit it into your schedule. Tim is willing to do individual sessions as the need arises during the summer, but participation in a group session by as many as possible would be a great time saver for him. You may sign up on the sheet in the commons area or look for an email message from Gary with a link to a SignUpGenius event.
