DAY 233 Kandi Geary photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP).
I became aware of the Hall when it was for sale in 2018. There was a Facebook page about selling 100 Men Hall so I walked over and saw it. Then I went back to Minnesota. I started following it. I followed it since you (Rachel) bought it and I think I have been to everything that you are doing here. From the minute I walked in the door after you bought it, I felt that you (Rachel) and the intent of the revival has been to build bridges. The first event I went to was the Holiday MashUp and we had this incredible band (Don Vappie), the Hanukkah menorah, and the Creole Christmas music. Then the next day I came by to help with A Soulful Christmas, and I saw all the kids running around and you said your Jewish son could believe in Santa too. The spirituality and food and everything here - I’m really drawn to it. I was here for the Martin Luther King banquet. I’ve come with friends but I’ve also come by myself, I always feel that whoever the community is at the event I felt so welcomed by them.
