St. Martin’s cleans up

By Sherry Algren

Our building and grounds got a

good clean-up during the May 1
Service Day. We fixed a hole in
the church wall on the east side of
the church, leveled the handi-
capped walk, weeded the gardens,
organized the altar guild supplies,
cleaned the pews, re-hung the
pictures in the narthex, planted
flowers in the north circle in mem-
ory of Don Harbaugh, the children
painted the trash enclosure with
their shadows, we tied blankets
and made cards for the card minis-
try. The hospitality committee
provided a lunch for the work-
ers. All in all, it was a day to renew
friendships, make new friends and
enjoy being in community.
