Hurrah for Follen’s Youth Service Learning Trip Participants!
Thanks to the ten Follen youth and the chaperones who accompanied them on this year’s service learning trip. Youth were engaged and committed; learning was deep and will, we trust, last a lifetime. Special thanks to Chef Caroline Walters, who kept the group fed, trip co-organizer Gray Watson for his many arrangements, and Youth Program coordinator Brian Sewell who led our group with humor and shared his commitment to social justice.  Thanks also to SJAT co-chair Rosemary McCrudden and Sunday RE Aide Lori Moresco (celebrating her twenty-fourth NOLA trip) for their many contributions.
