Spring planting in the Trinity Garden

will be Saturday, May 12, starting at 9:00 am. We will plant impatiens and the Shirley Wootten Memorial Geraniums, and clean up the garden for summer. This is a wonderful opportunity for kids with service requirements, and a chance for all who love digging in the dirt to offer service to Trinity. Bring gloves; tools will be provided.
The Lay Weeders are also planning a plant sale on May 19, in conjunction with the German Village Garage Sale, to benefit Trinity. If you have plants to offer for the sale, please contact Pat Rugola.

Speaking of the German Village Garage Sale:

On Saturday, May 19, Trinity again will be setting up shop in front of the Duryee’s home on City Park.  If you have anything to donate for the sale, please drop it off anytime before May 19.  Simply bring the items to church and Sexton Tom Belcher will be happy to collect them from you.
Bill Bronson is coordinating the sale this year and is asking for volunteers to assist with the sale from 7:00 a.m. through 1:00 p.m. on Saturday the 19th.  Please contact Bill in church or at 354-3753.

We remember all who work for peace around the world, especially in Nigeria, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Iran and Israel, Afghanistan, Pakistan and South Sudan.
