Mystic of the Month

Maya Angelou (1928-2014) was an acclaimed American poet, storyteller, activist, and autobiographer.

If you must look back, do so forgivingly.

 If you will look forward, do so prayerfully.

But the wisest course would be to be present in the present gratefully.

Glorious Blooms

The rain gardens and wildflower meadows at Pathways are in full bloom! Jenna Lee, a Conservationist with Elkhart County SWCD, came by recently to photograph the rain gardens and one of her images is pictured here. Come by and enjoy all the beauty this time of year has to offer.
