GROUNDS AND GARDEN WORK DAY
Come one, come all! The final St. Luke’s 2020 Grounds & Gardens Workday is Saturday, November 7th from 8:30 until 10:00. There is something for everyone, whether it’s clearing leaves from the labyrinth, cleaning the Memorial walls, deadheading the huge Lantanas or gazing with wonder at our blooming Yuletide Sasanqua Camellias. (Yes, the two shrubs by the Sprague doors are covered in blooms!) Please bring hand pruners and long handle pruners if you have them.

We encourage you to vote for vestry using an absentee ballot. Request one by e-mail or call the office. Vote for up to 4 candidates.
