The outdoor space at St. Mary’s Home has done it again! Mayor Daley’s 2010 Community Landscape Award recognized our gardens, awarding us 2nd place for our region. On November 6, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley presented the award personally to the Little Sisters, who were represented by Mother Patricia, Sr. Emma and Sr. Michael Teresa, as well as Residents Ann Young and Ralph Doffin. This honor follows a 2nd place finish for our containers which was awarded as part of the Sheffield Garden Walk in July.
All of the hard work and planning that went into the patio and garden have been well worth it! Whether alone or with family and friends, being outside is something our Residents truly appreciate and it has been wonderful to see so many enjoying the new and improved space.
