Tree of Life

 

Gracing one corner of the Trophy Room (the basment of Chalfonte) is a large mural of a spreading tree. Each kid signs a leaf with the date she or he first came to Chalfonte. Parents sign the trunk. A second mural covers the ceiling with clouds, comets and constellations. Thereon is inscribed the name of each Chalfonte kid who has died -- more than fifty at the time of this writing. All these kids are trophies, “more precious than gold.”
