Cleo Kottwitz: Moving and Staying Connected
By Cleo Kottwitz, firstname.lastname@example.org, Columbia
On Easter Monday, Judy and moved into a small duplex at Lenoir Woods Senior Community in southeastern Columbia. Downsizing is a challenge, but we have good support from family and Lenoir staff. We are adjusting to "resort living" as Judy's daughter describes it! We live four doors from Carolyn Steinhaus and around the block from Mel and Barbara West. There are numerous other retired clergy as well as other church friends and former parishioners in the community. We enjoy an on campus study group as well as an inter-racial group which included a civil rights pilgrimage to Springfield, Tulsa and Little Rock in July. We volunteer with Container Project in the nearby Worldwide Mobility Cart Center. We are fortunate to have family nearby and especially enjoy two amazing great-grandchildren.
