Stewardship St Alban’s Clean-up
On one Saturday out of every month from 8 am to noon we are cleaning, gardening, painting and repairing our little church and as Junior Warden in charge of building and grounds I need your help! Our next meeting date is Saturday, February 3!
Snacks, drinks and coffee are provided. Wear your old clothes and bring your own tools if you want. We need to paint the shed and the gate to Headstart, spray wash the parish hall, and clear the brush on Magnolia. In Fall we will plant drought tolerant plants and clear the turf to reduce our water and sewer bill. We also need to clean the old stove. Finally, we need to earthquake proof our bookcases and shelves. There’s lots to do and we need you on our team! If you can’t come every first Saturday, please come at least once!! It’s Stewardship of God’s house! Call Sandy Parks for more info or if you have questions: 760-533-5321. God bless you!!
