Palms planted on Evers Street and a group of missionaries from St. Clement Catholic Church help bring water to Dominican Republic.
Thanks to efforts by City Manager Bill McDaniel, the final stages of his downtown refresh project are underway. The streets are all striped and the sidewalks have been restored to their former glory in the means of solid pressure washing and minor repairs.
The long empty 19 planters on Evers Street received new occupants on June 25 with the addition of Coontie Palms, which have palm and fern-like characteristics.
Fighting for water
A group of missionaries from St. Clement Catholic Church’s young adult ministry spent a week working with the Good Samaritan Water Project in Vale Fiel, Dominican Republic. The group worked to help bring water to a community, which connected approximately 170 people with running water. Partnering with the villages, the Good Samaritan Water Project helps “open the door to health, education, income and a hope-filled future.”
They are planning another trip in 2019.
