Planting Peace for September 11

Planting Peace
Sunday, September 11, 2011

On the tenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks we hope to reflect and respond to the tragedy in a healthy and productive way. Therefore, we will be working with members of the Springfield Islamic Center, Baha’i Assembly, and other local communities of faith to engage in some much needed landscaping at Truman, Jeffries and Delaware Elementary schools immediately following the 11:00 am worship service on Sunday, September 11.  We will meet in the fellowship area outside the sanctuary and decide which school each person would like to go to.

Truman Elementary
3850 N. Farm Rd. 159
Springfield, MO 65803
*Work to be done at this location includes planting and laying mulch.

Jeffries Elementary
4051 S. Scenic Ave.
Springfield, MO 65807
*Work to be done at this location includes general landscaping.

Delaware Elementary
1505 S. Delaware Ave.
Springfield, MO 65804
*Work to be done at this location includes weeding, mulching, planting and constructing trellises.

Work will begin at each site from 12:00 pm (or as soon as you can arrive) to 4:00 pm and we encourage each person to bring a sack lunch so that we can all sit together for a meal prior to beginning work.

Please join us as we plant peace in Springfield!
