April 19 – "All For One, One For All" - led by EarthKeepers
This annual Earth Day service hosted by our EarthKeepers committee will focus on the concept that the community has an obligation to care for each of its members, and each member has an obligation to serve the community. It will be an adventure for the mind and the spirit. The dedication of our solar panels and recognition of all those who brought them from a dream to a reality, will take place during this service.
