In Loving Partnership

No matter how long the winter, Spring is sure to follow……

We are finally seeing the signs of Spring in blooming flowers, ornamental fruit trees, longer days and soft rains. The change in seasons also brings a lot of activity for members of IOKDS preparing for our General Convention. Please take a moment to consider the dedication, creativity and hours upon hours of hard work being done on our behalf as our leaders, staff and convention committee prepare for our time together in Chautauqua, NY.

In 1983 Jim Strathdee wrote a beautiful song of rededication. This is an ideal prayer for us to offer in gratitude for our 132 year old organization and the loving community we have established to serve In His Name.

A Scholar's Story
Message from Health Careers Scholar, Ryan Walsh

I thank the IOKDS community for its support during the last two years of my occupational therapy education!  I plan to finish the master’s degree, work with older adults in rehabilitation settings for a few years, and eventually continue with a Ph.D. and research career.  Support from generous organizations such as the IOKDS is instrumental to students’ pursuits of meaningful activities above and beyond the curriculum. Most importantly, we can be of better service to our communities because we face fewer financial pressures.
