Winter: See What Tomorrow Brings
Gayle Caldwell's song, "Cycles," was made famous by Frank Sinatra in the 1960's. Here's a portion of the lyrics:
"Life is like the seasons
After winter comes the spring
So I'll keep this smile awhile
And see what tomorrow brings."
This winter will go down in the record books as one that required a lot of our attention! But we keep our smiles as we live in hope for the arrival of spring. We know that nature will once again astonish us with a miraculous array of leaves and flowers currently being prepared under winter's snow and ice.
While we have continued to operate throughout the winter, the staff members at the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women are also preparing for the miracles that are certain to astonish us in the spring. This week, we welcome four Montclair State University students who will be with us until the end of April as part of their Psychology of Leadership class. We are grateful to Sister Elaine for her hard work in bringing this collaboration to fruition.
We have also been working on a collaboration with City Green as we prepare to plant our very first community garden this spring. If everything goes as planned, our women will have a great source of fresh vegetables this summer. We will keep you updated.
We are so very grateful to our volunteers, whose seemingly endless energy has propelled us through the winter thus far (and who have developed some very creative ways to find parking spaces here in the city despite the cold, snow and ice). The women of Passaic are fortunate to have such compassionate and determined individuals staffing the Center.
So, friends, stay tuned and see what tomorrow brings!
