Preschool Playground Renovation Completed
We are very excited to announce the completion of the preschool playground renovation project taken on by Mokena Boy Scout Troop 725. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the three Eagle scouts, Kevin Dion, Andrew Fornnarino, and Billy Zoetvelt, along with the many volunteers who assisted them in both the planning, fund raising for supplies ($15,000+), and physical labor of over 265 man hours, with no cost to the church or preschool. We are so grateful to all the individuals and companies for their generosity and hard work. A special thank you to those that donated their time and to the following businesses for their generous donations: Whitmore Ace Hardware, Alsip Nursery, Home Depot, Ozinga, Slager Brothers Construction, and Mulch-It.
