Landscape Improvements

In fall of 2017, Holy Family suffered a lightning strike to both parking lot lights and one pine tree near the sanctuary. Over time, the church has been working to replace items both inside and outside the building that were damaged by the surge of power. On May 12th, volunteers from the church, led by Building and Grounds Coordinator Stephen Hendrickson, tackled the removal of the dead tree as well as other landscape improvements. Finally, volunteers also assembled a large storage box for preschool outdoor toys. Gratitude is extended to all who helped with this project.
