During the 30 hours, the youth and adults will be doing activities and Bible studies to raise awareness and to recognize responsibilities the wealthy nations have to those in need. They welcome everyone's participation, financial and/or prayer support. They are also looking for service projects to do around the Ortonville community.

Work in your lawn off to a also make As soon as the ground feels finn under foot, rake the lawn lightly. This should remove any leaves from last fall, as well as annual weeds that died at the end of last year. Raking will also pick up debris that has accumulated over winter, such as twigs, dog bones and tiny toys. Any of these items can become a dangerous projectile if picked up and spit out by a power lawnmower. While you may be eager to fertilize before the grass has grown enough to mow, Brown says that's too soon. Wait until it's growing actively and you've mowed it once or twice before you fertilize. If you fertilized last fall, chances are good that fertilizing in early spring isn't even necessary. Almost all crabgrass preventers are combined with fertilizer. Even corn gluten meal, a "natural" crabgrass preventer, is ten percent nitrogen. If you plan to apply a crabgrass preventer in late April or early May, that should be sufficient to take care of .your lawn's nutrient needs for spnng.
