The definition of community is: a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interest and goals. The Riverside Arts Center believes in community. We believe in Ypsilanti. This week our first scholarship student began drawing classes. He was brought to our attention by the Superintendent of Ypsilanti Community Schools. He wants to be a cartoonist so the RAC is helping him make that dream possible. Community.
Last night in Ypsilanti there was a fire at 209 Pearl Street. Firefighters from Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti rushed to the scene. Luckily no one was hurt but now there are people who are homeless, who have lost everything. Please donate to the American Red Cross at www.redcross.org/mi/ann-arbor. If you don’t have extra money to give, donate clothes or blankets or your time. Community.
One of the things I love about Ypsilanti is the community. I feel like we are all in this together. I’m proud to be the Director of the RAC and a member of this wonderful community – after all helping each other is really what it’s all about.
