Just when you think no one cares . . . you find out that they really DO! WCU librarian Christina McCawley attended the program I was a part of in February at the Chester County Historical Society. After I shared my slides and talked about doing research on Pippin’s life and work, we had a period of discussion, during which local artist Jay Fuhrman made an announcement about the overgrown state of Pippin’s grave site. He proposed that anyone having any interest or knowledge about local permissions, etc. might want to look into it to see if anything could be done to clear away the brush and debris. Ms. McCawley was obviously listening, and took it upon herself to pursue the funding and cleaning up of the area around Pippin’s grave. On behalf of everyone who loves Pippin’s work and has been inspired by his life, I’d like to say “THANK YOU, Christina McCawley!” Read all about it here!
