Weekly News Wrap Up
STATION OF HOPE
St. John’s Church, located in Ohio City is one of the oldest in the state, and has been a spiritual home to Mayors, Senators, and captains of industries, but its real significance is serving as a home to those without power or prestige. All of these efforts became known as “Station of Hope”, a temporary refuge for those seeking freedom along the underground railroad. The community collaborated with the Friends of St. John’s group in 2013 to bring the once vacant space back to life. Through that partnership, “Station of Hope” has breathed new life in to Ohio City, as we witnessed recently at an event held at the church.
AFRICAN AMERICAN CULTURAL GARDEN GROUNDBREAKING
After years of planning, the African-American cultural garden project in Rockefeller Park is finally underway. The over-all purpose of the gardens is to promote peace and understanding throughout our community, and give a sense of history. Mayor Frank Jackson was joined by a host of Civic Leaders for a Ceremonial Groundbreaking of Phase One of the 2 million dollar project.
