Faith Linking in Action is very active. Many from St. Patrick’s attended the quarterly convening in January when the focus was on Transportation for All. What an eye-opening experience for non-bus riders to try to plan just one day having to use public transportation.  It became very clear that public transportation is important to all of us whether we use it or not. The better the service, the better for all citizens. For more information speak to Peggy Day, Peg Olson, or Mary Ann Perry
