In our hectic modern lives, there never seems to be enough time to do what’s truly important for the long term. April 23 will provide an opportunity to focus on four important causes in just three hours. At 9:00 am we will gather at the Trumbull Nature and Arts Center (TNAC) to clean up the grounds for spring and start a vegetable garden. The Sunday School students will join us, and we will work together in honor of Earth Day.
When our work is done, Sunday School Graduation will begin. Director Laura Snow will present brief biographies of each of the graduates as she gives them their certificates. Learning what these kids have accomplished is heartwarming and may surprise you.
As if supporting our kids and taking care of our environment weren’t enough, we will also be supporting education in science. Our work will serve TNAC’s mission of “developing nature-rich experiences and Science Technology and Math (STEM) immersive programs for all members of its community,” including those who are underserved.
But wait; there’s more. This event will be the first in a series of days of community service we will do together in honor of our Congregation’s 50th Anniversary.
To participate in this glorious morning, just show up at 9:00 am at the Trumbull Nature and Arts Center, Phone: (203) 452-4421. Be ready and dress to work in the yard or garden. It would be a bonus if you brought gardening or landscaping tools not powered by electricity or gasoline. And, if you have expertise in gardening or landscaping, please let us know in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
