Youth Boxers from Cappy’s Boxing Club finished up the first two rounds of their 12 round Community Health and Well-Being Project last week. Their first stop was the Central District Chamber of Commerce where they interviewed formidable neighborhood legend De Charlene Williams. The Youth were inspired by De Charlene’s vivid stories of the CD Community including the historic Fashion Shows at Washington Plaza.
The next round brought the kids toe-to-toe with Michael McGloin, owner of the Judkins
Street Cafe. With the kids seated around the table at his popular restaurant, McGloin explained his philosophy that business exists to serve the Community. His Community pride was infectious as he described hosting musical events, special dinners and fundraisers for his Central District neighbors.
