Lutheran Early Response Team (L.E.R.T.) Workday at St. John Lutheran Church in Country Club Hills, Illinois
This past weekend, Kathy O’Day, LCC Director of Disaster Response, eighteen LCC L.E.R.T. draggers, chainsaw, and heavy equipment operators along with four congregation volunteers served at St. John in Country Club Hills, Illinois for the day. They were able to fell many dead trees, remove dangerous hanging branches and provide cleanup to the 35-acre church, school, and cemetery property. They also cut all of the wood into fireplace length and stacked it so it could be used easily.
Ron Stewart, the church trustee, and the congregation members that worked with the team for the day were very appreciative and thankful to the following volunteers for their willing hands and professional assistance in making their property safe and looking trimmed.
