April 1, 2017: Cokesbury College Work Day

On April 1st there will be a work day at Cokesbury College at 9:30 am. They have again requested our assistance in planting and mulching the 4 formal beds and entry gardens with flowers. Please bring your gloves and gardening tools and join us in supporting this project. Plants and mulch are provided. The historic College is located on route 246 in Hodges. Please RSVP Sherry Edwards at sherberry3077@att.net so she has an idea of the participants. This will be a great way to earn some volunteer hours!
