On Saturday, November 4, several dedicated parishioners descended upon the grounds of St. Francis and worked to keep Mother Nature in check. From 8:30 to noon or so people were busy using hedge trimmers, clippers, rakes, brooms, shovels, tarps and blowers. The grounds look wonderful, thanks to teenagers who were there for service hours and the St. Francis Faithful. The devotion of the congregation is amazing; several people who were not able to be there on Saturday came beforehand and did a great deal of work, trimming back trees and shrubs. Thank you to everyone who participated – it was a great day!
