Community Garden Vandalized

Unfortunately, the photo above doesn't begin to show just how much destruction was done to the garden.
Dunwoody police are searching for the vandals who destroyed much of the community garden at Brook Run on Friday night/Saturday morning.
The vandals smashed structures, fencing and plants throughout the garden and destroyed food that was to be donated to a local food bank. 
The community garden is offering a $250 reward (up to $500) for information leading to the arrest of those involved. 
Last year the garden contributed donations of more than 3,000 pounds of produce to families in need in the Dunwoody area. 
I know Don Converse and his group will do an amazing job of getting the garden back up-to-speed as soon as possible, but it's just mind-boggling that someone would do this.  It's like taking food out of the mouths of the poor.  Completely incomprehensible!

Knights of Columbus Fish Fry

On behalf of all my fellow members of the Knights of Columbus at All Saints Church, a big thank you to the community for its continued support of our Lenten Fish Frys!
Our final Fry of the year was this past Friday night - over the course of this Lenten season we served a record 8,009 meals!  Over the final five Friday night, we averaged over 1,200 meals.  That's per night.  Our Knights of Columbus charities appreciate your support.  We can't wait until next year!
