God's Work Our Hands - 2019

Please register for a project that you, your family and friends can participate in to help make a difference in our community. You will be contacted by your project team leader prior to the work day with details and reminders about where and when to meet. Approximate times are listed next to each project. There is one project that takes place PRIOR to August 25, and one project that takes place two weeks after - on SEPTEMBER 8.

This year, we will be honoring our very own Judy Myra, a long-time CTS member who was passionate about community service and sadly passed away last year. The projects listed below were especially close to Judy's heart.
