This is a bit late but I was just reading the latest DeKalb Area Women’s Center newsletter and suddenly couldn’t stand not letting you know what happened with DAWC. I’m late because some of the group involved in helping clear the fallen chimney bricks off the roof and out of the garden are quite reluctant to have any sort of deal made of them. OK, so I just won’t name names of the neighbors who dedicated several hours of a beautiful Saturday to the job of making DAWC safer and more attractive. Hats off to these modest folks in whom the spirit of community resides.
[UPDATE 9/20: I am so glad now to have received permission from Ivan Krpan to mention his involvement in the project, because 1) without his amazing machine the roof could not have been cleared, and 2) we should recognize people’s following through on their promises wherever we can. Woot! Woot!]
