Landscaping Team - in Formation

Landscape Planning

Following the service on Sunday June 10th, all parishioners are invited to hear a presentation about major landscaping changes proposed for the church property.

Chris Morris has drawn up plans which we hope to implement over a 5 year period. The plan has a number of different "Phases" and is designed to provide us low-maintainence and attractive (orderly) landscaping.

Please plan to attend this meeting!
