Spring Service Project
Kelly, Rosaleen and Rob have been working on a project that may be supported by a District mini-grant (matched up to $250). The service project will be helping Ruth's Way in Lynn - a faith-based, sober community, assisting women in recovery, homeless women, and female veterans. The home was contacted for a list of possible projects and based on that list, we will likely assist the sober home with a new fence. More details to come.
