Hi everyone,

 Despite the forecast earlier this week, the chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday morning keeps inching up… In case of bad weather, here is the game plan:

 -       We’ll meet as planned at 9:00am. It looks like showers and thunderstorms are likely but scattered, so there is a good chance that we can get a lot of plants in the ground in the first few hours. Please bring a raincoat – if it showers lightly but briefly we will not cancel. Light rain is wonderful for new plants!

-       If it starts thundering or raining hard, we will shelter in the church. We’ll wait it out (what better chance to meet a new neighbor?) or pack up and re-schedule.

 If it is thundering and pouring at 9am with no chance of a stopping, we will re-schedule.  Willie, Gaile and I will be at the church regardless and those who come despite the rain can visit over coffee, and make sure we have their contact information so we can share the re-scheduled planting date.

 

If you have any questions tomorrow, call me or Gaile or Willie:

-       Gaile’s cell:           704-763-3957

-       Willie’s cell:           704-691-4815

-       Megan’s cell:        704-363-0792

 

Thanks for your help with this great project, and hope to see you tomorrow!

 -- Megan, Gaile & Willie
