Dear Friends and Neighbors,
I’m writing to let you know that I’ve moved to Vermont to be with family. Thank you for your many kindnesses over the near 50 years I lived on Potrero Hill.
This wonderful community has supported me in many ways throughout my life as a businesswoman with a flower shop on 18th Street, a single mother, a graduate student, and a San Francisco Unified School District teacher. The Connecticut Friendship Garden, which I’d been a member for more than 35 years, nourished me. When I first arrived in 1972, I was charmed by the people, the climate and spirit of community.
I hope the neighborhood will continue its innate spirit of welcoming generosity and kindness that helped me thrive.
Former Missouri Street Resident
