The week of Sept. 8 through 15 you might see a lot of bright gold and black t-shirts being worn by people all over Bluffton carrying rakes or hammers or paintbrushes and the like, and wearing work gloves.
Who are these people, and what will they be doing?
Well, they'll be the people of English Lutheran Church, and they'll be doing acts of random kindness and intentional acts of service as they participate in The AmazingRACE-Week of Service event.
