Presenting views from staff, guests, and supporters of the Lincoln Park Community Shelter
Thursday, September 30, 2010
Last weekend, I had the fun of going on the "Walks of Faith, Lives of Service" living history tour. I'm a history buff and LPCS supporter, so I was very excited about this tour. Despite the fact that it was a pretty chilly day, we managed to stay warm and have a great time! Along the way we learned about the early history of social justice in Lincoln Park, from its early founding in Vincentian values, and the tradition of it that continues to this day. We ran into a few surprise guests along the way, including Mrs. Carl Uhlich, a member of St. Pauls UCC who told us about when President Lincoln was nominated, and the founding of the Uhlich orphanage. The tour ended at the Lincoln Park Community Shelter with a tour of the recently renovated facility. A great time was had by all!
Don't worry, if you weren't able to join us the 25th, there is another set of tours on October 16th. Tours will begin at 10am and 10:30am. Tours are free!
