On Tuesday, April 19, Cynthia Newbille gave the closing speech at the groundbreaking for a new center for healthy communities sponsored by Bon Secours and CHAT.
At the end of the speech, she spoke about what she learned from her mother while living in Whitcomb Court. Her mother would take the preserves out of the cabinet and go next door to the neighbors houses who would have the bread and the milk. And the three neighbors would share the bread, preserves, and milk to feed their families.
She said that is how she learned about collectivism and partnership.
