EVENT RECAP FROM CHAIR SQUEAKY CONNOLLY
On Friday morning, April 12th, over 70 member of the Women of Saint Michael joined together to volunteer their time at Jubilee Park and Community Center and OM Roberts Elementary School.
Our morning was spent touching the lives of some many within the community. Several ladies fed, rocked and played with infants and toddlers at Jeanie’s Place while others spent the morning at David’s Place, their Headstart program working on several STEM related projects including reading about butterflies, decorating butterfly masks, planting seeds in the discovery garden and rooting avocado seeds.
Over in the Jubilee Community Garden, our team spent the morning tilling the soil and planting, herbs, peppers, tomatoes and a variety of beans, corn, squash and okra for the residents to enjoy later this Spring. We also planted several fruit trees with the help of Jubilee neighborhood volunteers.
The seniors are always our focus and our volunteers shared their morning with the residents playing Senior Bingo followed by lunch. Prizes were abundant and the seniors always enjoy their time with the WOSM volunteers. Our volunteers also spent time that morning at OM Roberts Elementary with several Kindergarten classes reading about butterflies, coloring masks and constructing a butterfly tent for the caterpillars that will arrive in a week. It was a glorious morning that combined the opportunity to give with fellowship with others.
