OXFORD — The campus of the Masonic Home for Children will get a sprucing up on Saturday in the school’s second “Great Landscape at MHCO.”

The home is expecting a large turnout of lodges, family, friends and community organizations to mulch, weed, plant and prune to get the grounds ready for spring. Painting and cleaning are also on the agenda.

Last year, more than 40 individuals participated in the event.
Volunteers are encouraged to bring their rakes and shovels as the event gets under way with a continental breakfast at 8 a.m.

Landscaping of the campus will take place between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Lunch and concluding activities will begin at 12:30.
