Students Perform at Downtown Events

Chaminade Julienne performing arts students lent their talents to the Homeless Persons’ Memorial Service at Courthouse Square on December 20. The vigil, sponsored locally by the Emergency Housing Coalition, was part of a national event held annually to remember the homeless who have lost their lives as well as raise awareness about homelessness in the community. It’s an issue that students are well aware as they participate in Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week each year in November.
