How do you thank dozens of people who dedicated their time, energy and talents helping you realize your personal and professional DREAM? Throw a party of course! On Saturday, September 13th we gathered together the amazing individuals who helped turn the dream of the Parenting On Track™ Home Program into a reality and honored them with a Thank You party.
The evening started with beautifully clad moms and dads walking down Burlington’s South Willard Street towards the student center at Champlain College. There was no red carpet, but it sure felt like a red carpet event. The doors opened to aromatic cuisine, the sound of glasses clinking and decorations that reflected the joy I felt. My favorite touches were the beautiful pictures of many of the guests displayed throughout the room.
A good time was had by all, from start to finish. We shared laughter, poignant stories, and even a few tears. The highlight of the evening was the acknowledgment of each one of the individuals who has supported this project. At one point, I looked around the room, at all these amazing parents and was struck, literally struck, by how blessed my life is and how lucky the world is to have such wonderful people in it.
Why am I telling you all of this? Because the party was not only to thank the cast and crew of the project, but to thank all of you as well. Without the loyalty and support of everyone that has been a part of Shared Ventures and the Parenting On Track™ program, we wouldn’t be where we are today. And for that I say, “Thank You.”
