Fifteen energetic volunteers ensured that the final work day of 2023 was a huge success.

Pick axes were put into action to add two hollies to the Memorial Meditation Garden while another group planted ornamental grasses to beautify the Dixie Trail side of the property.

Three volunteers apply tenacity and muscles to digging holes for new holliesThe ramp leading to the Pilgrim House front door was coated with a material that increases traction to reduce the chance of slipping when the ramp is wet.

A worker and an adviser install two new signs designating "Reserved for those with mobility challenges and famiiles with young children"Other volunteers pruned and pulled weeks, picked up pine cones from the children’s playground, replaced expired lightbulbs, blew off roofs, scrubbed out the church refrigerator after pitching expired condiments and reorganized the ushers closet. A parking block was moved to ensure that the soon-to-be-installed EV charging station is kept safe from vehicles. The soil removed to accommodate that project was redistributed around the church property and the nearby sidewalks washed clean.
