Faith Church Serve Sunday benefits Mariners Trail
On Sunday, Sept 14th, members of Faith Church in Manitowoc assisted with needed work on Mariners Trail as part of their Serve Sunday. Several men and teen boys helped FOMT members Steve and Patty Sturtz clean up unsightly plant overgrowth at the Trail area across from the Dairy Queen. They removed dead trees and took out overgrown weeds that had embedded themselves into the rocks. In the spring, the area will have some low maintenance grasses planted to cover up electrical boxes.
Also that afternoon, several families from the church walked the Trail and picked up litter. For two years FOMT has benefited from the help received during Serve Sunday. We are appreciative of their help.
Pictured upper left are John Klatt and Steve Strutz removing dead trees. The members of the McBride family are pictured to the right as they picked up litter along the Trail.
