Hi All,

As usual there is a lot going on so here goes…

Aug. 22 Community Dinner at the Eagles, thank you Chris R!

Aug. 25 Planting day at the Labyrinth–Many hands make light work.
Planting will begin about 9 a.m. A trowel and knee pad would be helpful tools.
There are about 400 sedum to plant.

Also if you have not stopped by to take a look at the labyrinth be sure to do so. The first part of the path was laid on Monday and the rest will be finished on Wednesday. If you visit after dark you will see the glow stones in action.

The BIG THANK YOU of the week goes to EVERYONE who donated to build the labyrinth. What a wonderfully generous community we have.
