*Help Make Our Garden “Beauti-Fuller”

  On May 2, we will welcome Hands On Greenville* volunteers from Fuller Consulting Engineers to help us continue the beautification of our Community Garden. There are two projects: 

  • Convert the area along the fence to a flowering shrub bed. We will bring in new garden soil and mulch and pressure wash and seal the fence timbers.
  • Mulch the corner of Edwards Road and Lake Fairfield Drive to make our plantings there “pop”.
  • We need your help to pay for materials and supplies (estimated at around $600) Please consider a financial gift (Community Garden) to help us offset the cost, or bid on bed  #15 for free organic produce during the growing season.

 

*Hands On Greenville is an annual community improvement event organized by the United Way. Last year over 7,000 volunteers completed hundreds of projects all over the county. It is one of the many examples of why we love Greenville !!!

Keep on the Sunny Side



-  Celebrate the Sunny Side of Life this Sunday with Ron, Kenny, Tom and Heather during the Children's Moment.  Here is a brief history of the tune written in 1899 and popularized during the Great Depression:  
In 1899 Ada Blenkhorn was inspired to write the Christian hymn by a phrase used by her nephew. Blenkhorn's nephew was disabled and always wanted his wheelchair pushed down "the sunny side" of the street. The Carter Family learned of the song from A. P. Carter's uncle who was a music teacher, and they recorded the song in Camden, New Jersey in 1928. "Keep on the Sunny Side" became their theme song on the radio in later years. A.P. Carter's tombstone has a gold record of the song embedded in it.
