Center of Grace Needs Painters … This Friday/Saturday!
The center is preparing for another school year with the Boys & Girls Club. Renovation is planned for the future, but classrooms and adjoining areas need a cleansing paint job now.

This Friday & Saturday Aug 9/10 from 8:00AM-12:00PM bring your favorite paint brush or roller and join us for laughter and good work. LOTS of bodies are needed!! At least 40 painters to get the work done. Come to the back lower level of the building. Yes, snacks will be provided!! Contact Kristi Cooper at email@example.com or 913-669-3131.
