This Saturday is going to be a busy day at Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield. In addition to the Holiday Fair (9:00 AM – 4:00 PM), we will complete the Peace Garden and doing our fall cleanup.We hope to see lots of you at Grace on Saturday. We will begin our work outside between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM.

Sue Bennett is still looking for volunteers to help with the fair and for people to donate new items, gift certificates, used items, and baked goods. (Give her a call with questions: 562-7784)

For the fall cleanup, please bring your rakes, leaf blowers, tarps, etc. The weather looks good, and we look forward to another productive and spirited cleanup crew!
