The Improvers meet Thursdays to complete maintenance projects within the church and squeeze in a little socializing. (Donuts and coffee are on pause during the building closure but the work continues.) The Imps tackle everything from small repairs, preventive maintenance, and yard work to special projects. They keep the church property in working order and have a good time doing it!
