Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Washington C.H. have recently harvested 10 acres of corn to help support outreach programs.

During the summer of 2015, a project named “Come Grow With Us” was undertaken to raise corn and use the profits to fund two outreach programs: The Well at Sunnyside and St. Colman Catholic Church’s St. Vincent de Paul project.

This year’s “Come Grow With Us” was located east of Washington C.H. at the intersection of Route 22 and the 753 Extension Road. The use of the land was donated by Dean O’Connor and Gary Nicholson. Other sponsors were Crop Production Services, Gibbs and Insurance Associates, Seed Consultants, and Cargill.
