  1. David F. Judd

    A great thing to do, and I had hoped to recruit area churches to join up and do this later…however this is very short notice.

    We have a work day scheduled for that day so No one from our church will be able to participate.

      Yes, it was very quickly planned, David. Good news, however, they are available on request and can schedule at your convenience in the future!
