June looks to be another busy month of celebrations and social engagements here at Deupree House!
At the start of the month, we had the opportunity to get a first-hand account of a unique cultural event when JP Lund, the son of Deupree House’s very own Ruth Lund, joined us in the Events Center to share stories and pictures from his amazing experience in South Africa: Mr. Lund had the chance to travel to Itsoseng, a town in the North West province of South Africa, to attend a “White Wedding.” As a long time close friend of the groom, who is a Finnish-American from Cincinnati, JP was able to enjoy this intercultural experience between the groom and his South African bride.
And of course, June just isn’t the same without The Krohn Conservatory Butterfly Show! This year the show—which turns 20 this season— saw the Butterflies of the Philippines preside over a majestic tribute to the marvelous Filipino culture.
Take a look at a few of the other special events in store for a community this month!
