Citizen of the Week

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Someone out in the anonymous world sent us this candidate for this week's CoW: "We would like to nominate prominent local artist Barbara Kennedy as Citizen of the Week," they say. "Knowing that local pastel artist and Prospect Gallery owner Rebecca J. Becker had a serious medical problem and no insurance, Barbara single handedly set in motion a benefit at Caribe that eventually involved nearly a hundred volunteers and donors. The proceeds from the benefit on November 18th have covered the costs of two trips to a specialist at Duke University in North Carolina, the second of which Rebecca will undertake on Dec 4th. Her prospects for a complete return to complete health are excellent. There can be no greater gift from one human being to another. Thank you, Barbara."
