The British Garden Party is coming soon!

Well, it is only a few days now (May 4th) until our annual British Garden Party, and there is still a lot to be done. The long-range weather prognostication given earlier by our resident forecaster, Fr Hawtin, for good weather seems to be holding up so far.

Maypole in ProgressThe Parish Life Committee (PLC) is getting into high gear, but still looking for more volunteers to help with ramped up efforts of these last few days. The sign-up sheets in the Cadwalader Room still have vacancies that need filling. Those of us that have worked on previous Garden Party efforts know, that in organizing a successful event such as this, there always seems to be one more thing to do. We can never have too many volunteers, so if you have the time and inclination, your help in these next few days is critically needed and greatly appreciated.

A word about the “Grounds Crew”. Friday morning May 3rd is the day that this all comes together physically. Tents and booths need to be assembled and erected early so that last minute touches can be completed. Although the work is not hard or strenuous, it does require a number of “hands” so the more crew that is available the easier it will be in time and effort for those involved. All Grounds Crew will rendezvous, rain or shine, on Church grounds at 9: 00 AM sharp!
