DID YOU KNOW? . . . that the reason our Memorial Garden on the north side of the church property always looks so beautiful, is thanks to a small caretaking team that pulls weeds — sweeps off acorns and twigs — and in general tidies up the space on a monthly basis. During this season of thanksgiving, we take a moment to thank Mark Aho (chair), Robert Bowman, Lisa Guion and Larry Miller for their service to those saints who are interred in our Memorial Garden.
