ELIZABETH RIVER STAR BUSINESS (ACHIEVEMENT LEVEL) AWARD
 
In January Nancy Helsel, Amy Weber, Helene Haluska and I had the privilege
to receive, on behalf of OakletteChurch,the Elizabeth River Project’s
River Star Business (Achievement Level) Award! The church received this
distinguished award for the following reason:“Confrontedwith standing
water in front of the church after rain,  Oaklette used memorial gifts
and partnered with the Elizabeth River Project and Friends of the Indian River
to develop a new rain garden. That means less runoff to the nearby Indian River
off the Eastern Branch of the Elizabeth. They are caring for God’s Creation on
the land entrusted to them as a worship place and making their grounds more
inviting to guests and visitors.”
