The day of the service we combined efforts with Eli Lilly & Company, Fall Creek Gardens and Purdue Extension to complete light construction projects and clean up the EMCC Jireh Sport Facility and grounds. We worked on the following projects: mulched playground and picnic area, trimmed hedges, cut down and sprayed weeds, cleaned up garden/flower beds, repaired exterior lighting and grade driveway, stained/painted benches and picnic tables, created a walkway from the parking lot to the center, built 8 garden beds, and painted the wooden entryway.
