Facilities Work Party Nov 14


The Work Party scheduled for Saturday, November 14th at St. John of the Woods is cancelled due to the Rain and Wind predicted  in the current weather forecast.  The inclement weather can be unhealthy for our volunteers and defeats the purpose of spraying the grass and weeds.  We will reschedule when the weather improves.  Thank You!
