Tulips on Troost-Holy Family Catholic Worker

Historically Troost Ave. has been the racial and economic dividing line in Kansas City. This year a business man decided to "market" Troost in a new way...with tulips! So this past fall neighbors and community groups got together and planted almost 1 million tulips for a few miles on Troost!!! They just started blooming during Holy Week! Talk about a symbol of hope and Resurrection in our neighborhood!
ok this one is actually me with Br. Jim (Paseo House), he asked me to help him carry something...we didn't drink much but they sure do have a lot!
up on the corner-31st and Troost

We actually have about 100 pictures that Vicki took but here are just a few! Blessings on your Holy Week...Happy Easter!
