I am a member of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church located at 8400 Old Redwood Hwy and the corner of Alden Ln.  We are visiting with our neighbors today to let you know about our plans to create a Prayer Garden to be located just outside of the church building on the side of the building facing Alden Ln.  May I ask your name?  The Prayer Garden will be a quiet, semi-enclosed landscaped space that will provide a place to pray and/or meditate when the church building is not available.  It will also be occasionally used as an alternate place to conduct some religious services that are normally held within the church building.  The theme of the Prayer Garden is Peace and Hope, and it will be open to everyone, regardless of their religious affiliation.  (SHOW DRAWING)  We have filed an application with the Town of Windsor, and the Windsor Planning Commission will be meeting to review our application at the Town Civic Center at 5:30pm on August 11, 2015.  If you would like to support our application, you can do so by signing our petition.  Hand them the flier and thank them for their time.   •	Possible Questions  •	When do you anticipate that Prayer Garden will be available?
