Wanted:  Good Shepherd "Gardening Angels"
Good Shepherd does not have a professional landscaping contract this year, so the job of keeping our beautiful grounds tended and welcoming is going to be up to all of us.  If you can pull weeds, handle a rake, or even just pick up litter we need you!  Come join our "Gardening Angels" from 7-8 PM on the 4th Tuesday evening of each month. We  will meet again on June 26.  It's satisfying work and a great opportunity for fellowship, learning, and sharing your knowledge of gardening.   In just one hour a month we can accomplish a lot!  Please bring your own gloves and favorite tools.  Contact Shaun Hardy (301-593-5187) for more information.
