Many hands make light work at the Meetinghouse Fall Work Day, Saturday October 22 from 9 - noon. Help get the building and grounds ready for winter by taking down the screens, raking and doing other fall garden clean up, minor repairs, covering windows with plastic, and other tasks. Bring a lunch to socialize afterwards. Working together builds community.
