Eagle Scout Project Update
We are so close to meeting the Reflection Garden Phase 1 fundraising goal. Just a few hundred dollars to go.
Volunteers cut out the walking paths and trenched the space for landscape edging Friday, July 18. Volunteers are meeting Saturday July 19 from 11:30 to 2:30 removing sod and placing some edging. July 20 and 21 volunteers will meet from Noon to 6 pm to finish the edging and place the weed barrier and stone. The benches arrived needing just a little masonry work. We will tentatively meet Wednesday July 23 from Noon until finished laying stone. The new light post is here and we are hoping an electrician will step forward volunteering some time to help attach the lamp to the existing electric source.
If you are able to volunteer your time to help with the physical part of this project, please wear closed-toed shoes with backs, and bring water bottles, work gloves, and any extra wheelbarrows, garden shovels, and garden rakes you may have. For those who are unable to help on site, the volunteers will work up an appetite. Donations of snacks, soda, and water are greatly appreciated. Thank you for any help you can give.
We will provide a snack on Saturday, supper on Sunday and Monday and if needed Wednesday.
Phase 2 Fundraising will continue until we meet our estimated budget of $3,000. A heart-felt thank you to those who have contributed financially toward Phase 1.
Thank you to Landscape Solutions, Mark & Susie's Piggly Wiggly, Serv-Ice, Stein Gardens & Gifts, Valley Lighting and Design, and Zillges Landscaping for your help and generous donations toward this project.
St. Joseph the worker, pray for us.
Joseph A. Hable
