St. Vincent de Paul and the spirit of Bloomsday

the Inland Register

(From the May 22, 2003 edition of the Inland Register)

For the sixth year in a row, the St. Vincent de Paul Society’s LaLa Gerber (center) dressed the runner statues in downtown Spokane in honor of Bloomsday. The runner statues were adorned with old Bloomsday finisher t-shirts, donated to the Society during the year. The first year she amassed some 200 shirts – more than enough for the task at hand. Most were dated 1981 and newer, although she did have one 1977 shirt to use. Assisting was friend Santi (left). (IR photo from the St. Vincent de Paul Society)
