Last week I overlooked mentioning Garden Club member Charlene Ackerman for her work in planting our courtyard garden and for providing cuttings from her home garden. All that hard work in the hot sun certainly deserves a mention! We encourage congregants to stop by and enjoy our beautiful new garden in the courtyard.

Please stop by and enjoy our beautiful flower garden in the Courtyard made possible by the newly-formed BJBE Garden Club. With rose bushes, daisies, a butterfly bush and a variety of cuttings supplied by congregants from their own gardens, this new addition to the Courtyard will provide beauty and enjoyment for years to come. A special thank you to Hedda Schless and Dale Busch for their "labor of love" under the hot sun, to Stellie Friedman and Hedda for creating the cascading planters, and to all the members of the Garden Club.

The BJBE office is closed on Friday, July 4 and the building is closed on Sunday, July 6. Wishing you a relaxing, fun and safe 4th of July weekend.
