OUR NEW MOSAIC GARDEN SIGN IS HERE!

Thanks to Ryan Kline for the beautiful design, and to Bert Palmer for hanging it!

 

LAKE ELLA DRIVE CLEAN UP

SATURDAY, MAY 27, 9:00 a.m.

Saint Paul’s has adopted a street! We will clean up Lake Ella Drive six times a year and would love for families, Sunday school classes, scout troops, and other groups to join in. Bring your own gloves, tongs, and nets (for the shoreline) to pick up litter. We will meet at Generations Park (large playground at Saint Paul’s) at 9:00 a.m. for the clean up that should take about two hours. Contact Patty Bailey at pcraig64@comcast.net.

 

ADOPT A WEEK IN THE MOSAIC GARDEN

Our new summer garden is planted and off to a good start, despite being chewed on by the lake ducks! (We’ve put in a small fence to keep them out and it seems to be working.) We are looking for helping hands this summer to adopt the garden for a week to water, weed, and check for pests. If you would like to volunteer, please email Jessie Perry at Perry386@msn.com.

 

FREE HERBS!

Need a few sprigs of rosemary, thyme, cilantro, oregano, parsley, or basil? We are growing herbs in the garden and you are invited to share. Scissors are located in the brown storage cube. Enjoy!

 

MAY CREATION CARE ECO-TIP

Did you know that your trash will outlive you? Plas­tic can take up to 600 years to break down in a land­fill, and Styrofoam never breaks down. Right in our own backyard, we discovered thousands of straws polluting Lake Ella during our last clean up. What can you do to help? Try skipping the straw, bringing your own reusable cup when you go out to lunch or coffee, and buy paper when you have to use dispos­ables. When planning parties and church gatherings, keep the environment in mind by using reusable dinnerware. We are blessed at Saint Paul’s with two great kitchens, so why not use them? Using reusable dishes saves your group money, and you can feel good about not filling a trashcan full of waste every time you meet. MOPS has gone green this year and you can too!
