As I mentioned the other day, the seminary lost its lawn service company and many people around here have been pitching in to make the outdoors look good for Wednesday's Call Day, the biggest day on campus, the day when second year students learn where they will be vicaring (interning) next year and the graduating class finds out where they will be pastoring their own congregations.
Yesterday I went out and edged the sidewalks around main campus. Here's what the entrance sidewalks look like now without grass overlapping.
With an edging machine, things work fairly easily and makes the area look so much better.
As an aside, Mary! Would you tell Ruth her edger is still in business and still doing its job. Just not on Tillotson anymore!
And, at the end of last week we agreed to terms with another lawn service company who will be able to take over the first week in May. This will be Top Care, the company which does Wash U's properties so we're confident in their abilities.
