If your family (or a couple of families) would be willing to mow the lawn on a particular week, please sign up on the sheet posted on the bulletin board. The church has two riding lawnmowers that can be used.
If you are not able to help by mowing the church lawn, you can help by donating to the Lawn Mowing fund. These funds are used to pay the lawn mowing service ($120/mowing, contracted for one week per month) and to supply gas for the church mowers.
If you have any questions, contact one of the Trustees.
