Bethany has requested help spring cleaning their beautiful memorial gardens by weeding and mulching on Saturday, May 13, 9–11:30 am. We will carpool from St. Paul’s at 8:30 am and return by approximately 12:30 pm. Just bring your favorite hand tools and gloves and Bethany will supply the rest. Many hands make little work, and you will feel the joy of helping Bethany with their needs. Please volunteer and add your name to the sign-up sheet in the hallway across from the church office. Questions? Contact Kathy Landis at 610.683.6246 or Cindy Swan at 610.207.2949.
