"Since the cultural life of our village has always been important to me," Therese was one of the founders of the original Arts Council, edited an arts newsletter, raised funds for Freedom Hall and chaired its first Commission, and is current president of the Art Center. She worked long and hard on the smooth transition for the integration of the schools in Park Forest, was a village trustee (until 1998, she and John were the only husband-wife team to serve as trustees), and has been active in the League of Women Voters as well as her church for many, many years.
