Water is available periodically during the summer. A donation of $30 is suggested for use of the plot. To reserve a garden plot, phone Carolyn at 419-384-3829.

The choir, directed by Linda Sycks, will offer “Kyrie”, arranged by Jay Rouse, which includes music based on Symphony No. 9 by Antonin Dvorak. This piece features an English Horn solo with Jeremy Szabo. Jack Henry Neff will play an unaccompanied cello solo and Jayne McGarrity will play organ selections.
