Mural Dedicated in Park Heights

This afternoon, Sinai Hospital celebrated its 50th anniversary with another of its 50 Acts of Kindness. Artist Danamarie Hosler created a one-of-a-kind mural that adorns the side of a house on the corner of Park Heights and Boarman avenues and the official dedication took place in front of her creation.

In addition to Sinai Hospital President Neil Meltzer, a number of community leaders spoke, including Baltimore City Council President Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, City Council councilwoman Sharon Green Middleton (District 6), and Pimlico Terrace Community Association President James Wood, pictured below with Meltzer.

"My wife and I, we'd pass by and see that young lady painting," Wood said. "I want to thank each and every person who helped get this program in place."

Sinai Hospital opted to do 50 Acts of Kindness to celebrate its anniversary rather than throw a party, Meltzer said. The acts have included a school supply drive, painting Pimlico Middle School and building a playground at Fallstaff Elementary. Future events include a community recycling day.
