What I’d really like to do is form a small gardening group – 4 to 6 people. I’m happy to say I have one volunteer so far, but still need 3 or 4 more. Men are not excluded! Each person could choose an area they want to work on – keeping it weeded and watered on your time schedule (but regularly). I can’t keep it all up myself any more, so this just might be a good solution to get some much needed help. We need some younger people to start stepping up to the plate so you know what to do once we seniors can no longer do things or are gone. Please let me know if you’re interested in lending a hand. You can e-mail me at email@example.com or call me at 586-239-8460. Unfortunately, I neither speak nor understand Russian. Thanks! – Davida
Also, the three spots where the trees were cut down in the parking lot need to be fixed once and for all. They need to be filled in and patched with stuff that I’m sure is available at, say, Home Depot. It would be a shame to have to hire some handyman to do this, as I’m sure we have enough able-bodied men in our parish who could probably complete the job in a couple of Saturdays. And the nine or 10 big chunks of asphalt that someone put under the one evergreen need to be hauled away. I’m sure there has to be some asphalt company that will come out to get them, as they can be recycled. Don’t even think about burying them on the property, as I’ve read you shouldn’t do that. It shouldn’t be my job to also have to worry about asphalt chunks along with gardening. Again – thank you!!!!!!
