Give for Good Louisville!
Thank you to everyone who gave to Day Spring through Give for Good Louisville!
Exercising at the FCC
Participants had the opportunity to attend a low-intensity exercise class on the lawn of the Ford Community Center. The class was hosted by Leah Travisano, a personal trainer in Louisville. She volunteered her time to help residents get active again. Jessica Green, program manager at Baxter Avenue, arranged for Leah to come teach this class.

An update from Patrick Magill, Day Spring Board Chairman
As most of you are aware, Sarah Trester has announced her retirement effective June 30th, 2021. The Day Spring board and operating staff are going to miss the wise leadership that Sarah has provided for the last 8-years. Sarah has left the organization on a firm footing and we are confident that we will be able to attract the right individual to fill the void left by Sarah’s departure.
