Thanks to the Kansas City chapter of the Order of Malta, our grounds are looking pretty sharp. The Knights and Dames came out bright and early last Saturday with garden tools in hand, friends and family by their sides, and smiles on their faces for their annual fall cleanup.
They tackled a rather ambitious project of a drainage area near the pond with cattails as far as the eye can see. (There were a lot of them anyway!)
By lunch time the area was all cleared out, cleaned up, and de-cattailed! We were amazed!
A heart-felt Thank You to the Order of Malta for your friendship over the years and your enthusiastic help with giving our elders a lovely home.
*The Order of Malta is a Roman Catholic lay religious order whose mission is summed up in its motto: Tuitio fidei et obsequium pauperum, “Defense of the faith and assistance to the poor.”
