    How about a little spring cleanup project to benefit Sunflower House? They need some help with clean up and sprucing up the grounds around their building for the summer. They are looking for some help from 1:00 to 4:00 on Friday afternoon, April 26th to get this done. The plan is to meet at Sunflower House and spend the afternoon helping them get ready for summer.  Sunflower House is a children's advocacy center dedicated to protecting the children in our community from physical and sexual abuse through education, advocacy and  forensic services.
