Center photos show Sister Zita at her party on the left and clients gathered for the celebration on the right. Client Irma is shown at the celebration in the bottom photo.
Program Director, Sister Zita Telkamp, CDP, is someone who comes to mind when contemplating inspiration. Anyone touched by La Posada during the past 10 years can certainly offer testimony of her daily activities that are inspiring. We are not sure when she sleeps because it seems she is always up and about attending to various client and staff needs. And, she does all of this at all times of the day and night! That is why it was very fitting that clients and staff stopped for a break to honor her and celebrate her birthday on March 23rd, with cake and ice cream.
Thank you Sister Zita for all you do!
Ever wonder who inspires someone like Sister Zita? Well, she recently told us of someone, a client, named Irma. When asked why, Sister stated “The reason why I find her inspiring is that she is 78 years old and very hard working. I have noticed her helping our cook in the kitchen, cleaning, and setting the table. She shows the energy of a younger person.”We all need sources of inspiration to help us as we travel our life’s journey. May Providence shine on our inspirational heroes – those for whom we sing praises and those whose praises are yet to be sung.
