Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and City Councillor Michael McQuillen paid a visit to Still Waters Adult Day Center on Monday, March 18.
Ballard and McQuillen toured the Center and visited with Still Waters’ guests, staff, and volunteers.
Both expressed support for the Center and its parent organization, Castleton United Methodist Church. “I don’t get to spend a lot of time in the Lawrence Township area, but there are some terrific things going on in this community,” said Ballard. “I’m glad I got to see this because it is clear, you are doing some terrific work,” he continued.
McQuillen, who represents Indianapolis’ District 12 on the Indianapolis Marion County Council, was equally impressed. He was excited to see Still Waters’ guests working on a service project for Crestview Middle School. “My wife is the librarian at Crestview,” he said. “It’s wonderful that you are reaching out and helping our local schools,” he added.
Both Ballard and McQuillen agreed that ministries like Still Waters help make the community a better place.
