East Siders celebrate community booster’s retirement

For some people’s retirement parties, they get a cake, a greeting card and maybe a little scrapbook.
But not Karin DuPaul, community organizer at the Dayton’s Bluff Community Council. That would be a small gesture in comparison to the theatrical commemoration of her 30 some years of service to the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood.
DuPaul will turn 70 next week and in December plans to retire from her post as the community engagement coordinator at the Dayton’s Bluff District Council. She served on the council’s board from 1982 to 1994, and started as the community coordinator there in 1996.
