Our Spring Celebration was a lovely event! Many thanks to Lori Morris for so generously hosting us in her beautiful garden.
For those of you who were unable to attend, we announced this year’s Community Gifts…$50,000 dedicated to sustaining and expanding playgroups in Alexandria and another $10,000 for Developmental Gifts…and also the new Board of Directors and Officers. Details about the Board and this year’s gifts are on the web site.
The Developmental Gift application process is now open! We’ve already notified many agencies and organizations but please feel free to let others know.
Next year’s Officers and Management Committee are already planning for next year and have identified some new and different volunteer needs. Please read on to find out more about them and don’t be shy about getting in touch for more information if you are interested or know someone who would be a good fit.
Also, there will be Circle Time in June to kick off the summer. This month’s event will be Wednesday, June 16 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am at Panera located at 3201 Duke Street. Come as you are, with or without children, for a coffee break.
In the next newsletter you receive, the Notes section will be from our new Co-Presidents, Cathleen Phelps and Karen Snow. It is hard to believe my term is at an end and that I am graduating to Ex-Officio! Thank you, all, for your hard work, your support and your commitment to giving every child in Alexandria the best possible start. Have a glorious and happy summer!
