After many discussions and portrayals the Civil War was put to rest (we hope). Slaves (portrayed) discussed the emotional stress of slavery to people and family, while Isabel Wilkerson (author of The Warmth of Other Suns) reminded us of what it was like to be black during the Jim Crow era and the Great Migration north.
We were saddened by this historical reference and the ending of another season. However, the UM House was alive with a very cohesive unit and a dynamic leader.

The view from our porch says the end of the season is at hand. It has been another great summer.
We await the 124th year of Hospitality at the UM House.
