Turning Over a New Leaf
The major event in November was our annual Fall Clean-up. As in the spring, the scouts of Troop 220 along with some intrepid volunteers from the congregation pooled their efforts together to make this a great success. I continue to be amazed at the energy and dedication demonstrated during these events…and I continue to be ever grateful. As my heading implies, there were lots of new leaves that got tossed and turned by the rakes and leaf blowers. The leaves were so new, that their tree borne companions were clinging to the branches over our heads. In the days that followed many more leaves came tumbling down soon covering those recently cleared areas. A couple of return visits with a rake and a leaf blower wielded by my wife and me quickly remedied that situation.
Sometimes it’s the little things that make a difference…like replacing light bulbs. If you come to the church after dark you will now see that all of the lights in all of the outdoor lamp posts and the flag pole are now operating. Simple bulb replacements took care of that. Also, some lights inside the church building needed new bulbs. What took at little more energy and creativity was eliminating the lean of two of those lamp posts. We also had to replace the timer for the wall lights at the office area entrance.
If you have any comments or suggestions about our property or buildings, or if you’d like to lend a hand on a project, I’d love to hear from you.
