Grace Community Center Gets a Helping Hand!

Today was the big landscaping day for the new Grace Community Center.
Nearly a hundred volunteers showed up throughout the day to help
Horseman's Landscaping Company put in hundreds of plants,
shrubs and trees. Volunteers were there early this morning and still
putting the final touches on this afternoon. Riverside Bank brought
over their grill and cooked lunch for the heartfelt crew.

During the day today, help ranged from the very young to many in
their elder years. The group of volunteers came from a variety of
economic backgrounds and cultures. Today's event was one of
many community activities planned at the Center. Not only will
there be opportunities to help the doors get open, there will be
countless ways to get involved in the future.

Many of the surrounding residents will be able to utilize the
resources and support through the much needed Community
Center. This event was just a glimpse of great things to come
from the North Fort Myers Grace Community Center.
