The next of Paul Granger’s Front Porchin’ series features community organizer Mary Thompson:
Mary Thompson would tell you point blank that you need to get involved in your community, ideally through a civic association. She has lived in her home in Church Hill for 64 years, but her investment in her community goes beyond just residency. For nearly 25 years, Mrs. Thompson has been leading and inspiring neighbors to invest in their community, and over the last quarter century she has been on the front lines of bringing inspiring, positive transformation for her and her neighbors.
