Sojourners Celebrates 10 Years

The Capitol Lakes Foundation was once again honored to sponsor the 10th annual Sojourners Breakfast in late January 2024.  The breakfast is organized by a group of residents – led by Chaplain Guta Cvetkovic – committed to considering big issues from an interfaith perspective.  Over the years they have welcomed speakers like Rabbi Jonathan Biatch with Temple Beth El, James Morgan with Just Dane, Baba Abubakar Drammeh who is a retired ambassador and a member of the Republic of Gambia’s judiciary, and Mr. Samba Baldeh who was the president of the Madison City Council and currently serves as a Wisconsin State Representative for the 48th district.

For their 10th anniversary, a capacity crowd of roughly 96 residents gathered to hear Professor Patty Loew speak about her work with the Tribal Youth Media Initiative – a digital media project creating the next generation of Native American storytellers and land stewards.  She shared videos created by these young people and relayed the positive impact the program has had on their lives.

Patty’s presence at Capitol Lakes was also a homecoming of sorts as her mother, Alice Loew, had been a long-time resident prior to moving in with Patty last year.  Living at Capitol Lakes for roughly 20 years, Alice’s impact on our community continues to be felt.  Residents appreciated hearing a touching story Patty shared about how her mom came to live at Capitol Lakes and they also imparted their affection for both Alice and Patty during a lively and informative Q&A session.

We are incredibly grateful to you for providing the resources to support this special and moving anniversary event.  With your continued help, we look forward to bringing this breakfast to residents for another 10 years.
