In late March, our TOTS program enjoyed the planting of a TOTS Family Tree on the west side of our property near the pond. Parents, staff, and Vestry members attended as the donated 4H Blue Ribbon Champion Ruby Red grapefruit tree was set into the ground with a plaque containing the names of the children.
Bp. John gathered all in prayer and proclaimed a blessing upon the children and their families. Thanks go to Connie Boyter and Judi O'Steen for your help with the refreshments, and to Mike Pitman who prepared the site and ensured a smooth planting. TOTS (Teaching Our Toddlers Spiritually) is an early education preschool ministry of Christ Church for 2-4 year olds and operates under the direction of Bruce Gammell.
