Ants and other insects have made their home underneath the carpet on the sanctuary steps and ramp. The carpet also retains moisture, which has led to issues with the railings and especially the columns that are supporting the portico. The carpet, therefore, has to go, and we will remove it next Saturday. We will also clean the wall along the ramp, where mold and moss have moved in, and there are weeds that need to be pulled.
So it's "all hands on deck" this Saturday, February 9, from 9 a.m. until about noon.
Bring work gloves, buckets, brushes, and any tools you can think of we might need.
