Merit Makers & Side Notes
Thanks go out this week to Paul Krebs, Patrick McGinity and Joey Gooch as our faithful Serenity Gardeners. They tidied up our flower beds, trimmed the bushes and pruned branches away from our building. It takes many hands to keep our grounds healthy and in a beautiful condition we can all be proud of. We welcome all to join in effort to help out during grounds days or to pick weeds in the gardens during times that work for you. Thanks guys for giving up time on your weekend!
