Rosa Parks Autumn Activities Highlight Harvest and Gratitude

Recent garden and art activities offer myriad opportunities for our children to celebrate the beauty of this season. The children love harvesting the golds, rusts and crimsons of the Peace garden; they glow with delight as they decorate for Halloween and paint pumpkins with feelings.

The month of October is Polish Heritage Month and Holy Rosary Month. October 8 is National Pierogi Day; we serve a lot of pierogi during Fridays in Lent. October 4 is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis being the Patron Saint of animals always leads me to mornings with my dog, Ramsay.



Lunch is always a new experience at the Meldrum Soup Kitchen. I was at a table today with a gentleman who was talking about his life and struggles. He then turned his words inside out and began laughing at himself.


Helping Jesus

I was taught a lesson in gratitude recently when one of the men who comes to the kitchen was riding with me on the way back from the warehouse. He remarked: “I am so fortunate. I don’t have electricity or water right now, but I’ll get that on. But, I am well; I’m up and walking. I have so much to be thankful for.”
