Thank you to the volunteers that were able to help at the Church Work Bee on Sunday, May 1, from 1-5 PM. We concentrated our efforts to clean the upholstery on the blue chairs and there were "lots" of them! Right at 5 PM the last chair was scrubbed! The only thing left was the final spray and vacuum of the upholstery on the remaining chairs and to clean some repair pieces. This Sabbath we hope you enjoy sitting on clean chairs in your Sabbath School Classrooms and at the next Fellowship Dinner. Thank you to Pastor Marvin, Tracy Weakly, Doug Ausmus (repaired chairs and other tasks), Dennis Triplett, Jeannie Hanes, Reg Maas, Violet Keightley, Ben Calvert (Presbyterian Church) & Sofia Stone. Great job everyone for the teamwork!
The Garden Committee – Bob Young, Donna Young and Lester Payne took advantage of the beautiful weather to plow and mow.
Alvin Erickson worked on removing cabinets in the kitchen so the freezer could be moved into the kitchen area; Karen Maas focused working on the Primary Classroom; Joe Van Dyke had plans to work on changing filters; unfortunately, the parts did not arrive so he made himself available to do other tasks.
The volunteers worked very hard and afterwards relaxed to a meal of Subway sandwiches after all that grueling work.
Thank you everyone!
