There is a quote which says, “I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.”
OACAC's Excecutive Director, Carl Rosenkranz, is a shining example of how giving is joyful. Please join us in saying thank you for 45 years of service to OACAC and our community.
