On behalf of the New Canaan Nature Center, I would like to express sincere thanks for the generous contributions from local and surrounding merchants to the 2012 preschool fundraiser auction, "Step Into Spring." This event could not have happened without the support of these establishments and the hard work and dedication of the three volunteer chairmen, Kristen Barnard, Julie Passios and Laura Prior. I would also like to thank the entire wonderful committee of preschool parents whose energy and enthusiasm made the evening possible.
This year's event was a great success raising more than $30,000 for the benefit of the New Canaan Nature Center Preschool. These funds will contribute toward building enhancements and upgrades, continuing education for our teachers, trail maintenance, classroom supplies and more.
Thank you for supporting our dedication to helping young children develop and grow while using the diverse resources of the New Canaan Nature Center.
Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the many valuable contributions.
