November 25, 2016
Approximately 100 people participated in our annual morning of community service on the day after Thanksgiving. After a light breakfast hosted by St. Edward Catholic Church, volunteers headed out to their choice from among five area venues to lend a hand: Ann Norton Sculpture Garden, Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Caps of Love, Levine Jewish Residential Services (art project pictured at left), and beach clean-up.
Nonperishable food and new, unwrapped toys were also collected and donated to area agencies, as well as plastic caps and lids for Caps of Love.
It was great to see everyone in their bright Fellowship Friday t-shirts, working together to make the community a little better. Click here for more photos of the 2016 event.
