Please come to help spruce up Grady as we move through spring.  On Saturday, April 19, please join us to clean up the grounds and perhaps help prepare for the renovations.  We'll start at 9:00 and work until we're done or we're out of workers!  Meet at the walkway near the gym.

Please forward the names of any volunteers to Lydia Brandon at btw83inc@bellsouth.net. This may include yourself or others, who have stepped forward this year and helped in any way at Grady.
