DIY Lawn Games Continues!  Youth Group has been discussing various lawn games that we can build and put together, and we have begun construction. Finished games will be available for Youth Group use and also provided to the parish for use at special events.  Youth are asked to look around their homes for items that can be re-purposed for use as part of a DIY game.  Please discuss with parents.  All ideas/suggestions welcome!
