My husband and I moved to St. Jo(seph) in August and live at Serenity Place on Seventh, a wonderful assisted-living facility close to Klinefelter Park. I am so pleased to be part of this vibrant community with so much to offer – all within driving distance!
I have been volunteering with the ESL/ELL classes at the Spirituality Center and have found it’s a great way to meet new people and greet our immigrant and refugee population. The program is part of the St. Cloud school district but the teachers are all volunteer. It’s under the umbrella of Cultural Bridges, a local organization which supports other programs to reach out to our new neighbors. I recently attended one of their meetings and came away so grateful for the opportunity to be a small part of this citywide effort.
There are many ways one can volunteer with Cultural Bridges. You may want to be a part of this welcoming effort too. Call Dianne DeVarges at 320-345-0593 for more information.
