To celebrate its organization’s 25th anniversary, volunteers from St. Paul Lutheran Church rolled up their sleeves on Sunday and provided some community service.

Some 60 to 70 people, most of them wearing bright yellow T-shirts that read, “God’s work — our hands,” began their service projects after church on Sunday.

Among the service projects:

  • Trimming several rose bushes in the front and back of the Hill House Museum on South Church Street.
  • Providing food for people who need it at the Lodi Salvation Army.
  • Providing backpacks filled with school supplies for the needy. They included notebooks, pens, erasers, a pencil sharpener, crayons, scissors and rulers. The backpack covers had crayon drawings created by children from the church.
  • Visiting and singing for shut-ins in the community.

The service projects were done to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, of which St. Paul is a member. Church members from throughout the country participated in service projects in their community.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
