One of our Church members is the PTA President at two of his daughters elementary school. The PTA and the Church combined to help the school get rid of lots of trash that had accummulated in the back field ...some from a hurricane 12 years ago! the Principal told us that she remembered as a little girl running up the big rocks in the back of the field and she wants to have today's children do the same thing. She wants to start an outdoor school room to have the children learn about nature ...in nature! So we burned weeds, hauled metal scraps, Elder Smith chopped a big plant with his machette, and picked up trash for about 6 hours! The other PTA volunteers wanted one of our pretty yellow Mormon Helping Hands tee shirts - but they were just for Church Members...it was good day and the school fed us lunch!
