William Moves On: Best Wishes

William Turits is Moving On 
Article by Meg Henderson

William


William Turits has been a long-time member of Camphill communities graduating first from Beaver Run, then Beaver Farm in Pennsylvania where he started when he was 12 years old. He has been in Triform for three years and has had three happy, fulfilling years where he made many friends and endeared himself to everyone.
During his trial visit, William lived in Halcyon house with Akiko and Takeshi and had a great time talking to everyone. William loved to walk between the houses, doing errands and taking messages in that first icy January (as well as participating in all the scheduled activities!) The following Fall
William moved into Woodland house with Maggie as a householder.

Family and Friends Day

The concert was just the beginning of an activity filled weekend! On Saturday morning for Family and Friends Day, we worked together on projects throughout the community including: mulching paths; clearing rocks from the potato field; creating mosaics in the pottery studio and baking dinner rolls. There was time to rest and socialize, view the beautiful coursework exhibit hung by art teacher Alison Fox and Aroon Kalsi and have lunch together to reconnect with the Triform family.

14th Annual Benefit Concert


Dar William's playing her magic
     On June 24th, Triform held our Annual Benefit Concert featuring singer song-writer, Dar Williams. More than 250 people came out to hear Dar and to support Triform in this important annual fundraiser. We are so fortunate to be able to welcome the larger community to our concerts each year in the gymnasium of the Phoenix Center. The gym was transformed into an intimate concert setting with a well-lite, well-decorated stage and a Steinway for Dar's pianist, Bryn Roberts. The concert was lovely and when Triform's Bell Choir performed "The One Who Knows" with Dar, everyone was moved.
