No, we are not retiring for a while, but some very thoughtful parents set this up.

Every little bit helps; if you wish to contribute, we certainly appreciate it.

Please feel free to share on Facebook or with alum families.

Dear Friends,

We hope you will contribute to this supplemental retirement fund for Celia & Barbara. Unfortunately, childcare providers are not valued and taken care of as we might wish in our world, in spite of the beautiful, important work people like Celia & Barbara do--and have done for our families. We hope you will join us in doing what you can to support them.

Please consider contributing to this community retirement fund for them. Even a modest contribution helps!

THANK YOU! for taking this opportunity to honor Barbara & Celia and all they have done for our children and our communities. Please help us to spread the word by forwarding this campaign to other Cottage Garden & Hartsbrook families, and to anyone else who's been touched by Barbara & Celia's work.

With gratitude,

Bernadine Mellis & Andrea Lawlor
Cottage Garden Parents, 2014-16
