Paul Kopenkoskey, Board of Directors

I joined the Instruments of Hope board simply because I was invited to do so. The reason I remain on the board is more far-reaching.

Every time I stroll through the Garden I get a sense that God has charged me to help make a difference people’s lives in a quiet way that’s minus the noise and fanfare that typifies the outside world. I’ve learned that emulating St. Francis’ life is a worthy and unending goal.

Equally important, the Garden is here to harbor peace for people within themselves and the community at large. It’s an honor to serve on the board.
