10-12 volunteers needed for Friday, June 23rd 9:30am

Posted Jun 19, 2017 by Tiffany Rouech

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the beginning of summer! Jessica Kovan has been so very kind to speak with Van Atta's nursery who has graciously donated the plants and flowers needed to decorate Rachel's front yard. Here is a message from Jessica... "As I am sure you know the Okemos community has jumped in big time to help Rachel after Ross died. One of the things that he was working on was landscaping their front yard and it is now in an in between state (thank you to those who have worked so hard to clear the weeds). I talked to Van Atta's about helping get her front yard to a point that it looks nice and needs minimal maintenance from her. They quickly agreed to help - which was incredible. It is amazing what a simple request can do. Van Atta's has agreed to donate all of the plants and to design the area and plant it if we can get the ground ready for planting. I have been working with the owner George Van Atta's wife, Cheri, to help think it all out. She has been amazing and is actually going to help with all of the yard work. We have scheduled a work day this Friday starting at 9:30am to turn over the area of Rachel's front yard to get it ready for planting. I am looking for about 10 people to help - though the more the merrier. If any of you are interested, or have children that are around that would like to help, or know someone else that might be interested, please let them know and let me know!" If you can please bring your own spade and shovel, that would be great!! Please let me know if you are able to participate by responding via meal train. Thank you so very much! ~Tiffany

Landscaping/Gardening crew

Posted May 20, 2017 by Tiffany Rouech

Hello volunteers! I can't thank you enough for the overwhelming response to support Rachel and her family!! She is so appreciative of everyone's love! I wanted to remind everyone who is on the gardening crew to please bring your own tools if possible. Rachel will remain inside the house. For lawn mowing, it is a push mower and I'll have someone bring the mower out into the driveway so it's accessible. Any questions at all, please text me at 734-276-5083. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! -Tiffany
