April/ May 2013
This is my favorite time of year. I love the holidays-- Passover, Easter and Pentecost-- not yet sapped by commercialism and full of promises of renewal. I love the crazy day-by-day growth in the gardens and parks, the long twilights, eating lunch outside, and heading out to work in the morning with just a light jacket.
It is a cliché that spring is a season of new beginnings. As a high school English teacher reminded me, however, clichés all contain an essential truth. At Depaul USA, the spring finds us launching new programs and initiatives. As you will read in this newsletter, work continues in Macon to make Daybreak the best place possible to serve the homeless. In Philly, we just celebrated the first anniversary of Immaculate Cleaning Services, LLC, our for-profit commercial cleaning business. A new show hangs in our gallery and we are planning two fundraisers— a dinner at Baby Blues Barbeque by UPenn and the Depaul USA Walkabout, a 5k walk/run in Awbury Arboretum. If you are in the Philadelphia area, please do participate in at least one of these events as they are intended to raise much needed funds for our work in Germantown.
Personally, I wouldn’t miss the walkabout. There’s no better place than an arboretum to witness the glories of spring.
Thank you for your support of Depaul USA.
