Responding to the Hard Rock Hotel Collapse: A Message from Sister Marjorie Hebert

We served the displaced residents of the LaSalle Apartments, organized memorials and travel arrangements, provided counseling to families and some of the construction crew, and worked closed with the city and family members of the three victims.

Honoring Veterans at Greenwalt Adult Day Health Care Center

“Too blessed to be stressed” is Mr. Butler’s motto. Each time he walks into Greenwalt Adult Day Health Center, he quotes this as he greets staff and other participants. Born in 1939, Mr. William Durant Butler joined the army at the age of 17. He completed six months of basic training at Fort Hood in Texas and served for three years in Frankfort, Germany. During his time there, he learned to speak the language and enjoys practicing his German with staff and fellow Greenwalt participants. We thank Mr. Butler for his service and for sharing kindness with everyone he meets!
