I will never forget seeing Saint Lucia when our daughter was in her first year at Waldorf, in Karen’s Kindergarten class. I could not believe my eyes to see a young child walking with such care and reverence with lit candles upon her head. I went home and told my husband, “They celebrate Saint Lucia with REAL candles! How cool is that?” We started celebrating Saint Lucia in our family a couple years before that but with battery operated candles. Then, it was such a treat for us to see our daughter shining her light when she was in 2nd grade. While she was a bit nervous beforehand, she persevered under the loving guidance of her teacher, Ms. Garlieb. (Julia Wahlin)

I love this early photo of the Shepherds’ Play. Karen White is Mary and husband Christopher (playing a Shepherd) is looking at her adoringly. The play was a gift from the faculty to the children for so many wonderful years. Pictured, left to right, standing to seated: Matthew Winston, Wendy Coughlan, Sueanne Campbell, Marcie Merriman-Means, Katherine Verman, Karen White, Christopher White, Pam Graham, Sheila Sharp and Michele Starr.

Spring-Benefit

I have lost count of the number of Spring Benefit Galas I have attended, but each one will always remain a special memory for me. As Auction Manager for many years, and Gala Volunteer for several years before that, I have always been filled with awe watching the community come together to create such beauty for the senses. Shelburne Farms Coach Barn is transformed into a concert hall and elegant party venue. An unbelievably tremendous concert featuring our students and community members fills our hearts each year. Parent volunteers create a magical ambiance for all to partake in wonderful food, drink and the company of good friends. And a spectacular Online, Silent and Live Auction provides bidding opportunities for all to generously support the school that nourishes our children’s souls. Many thanks to my son, Devon Govett (Class of 2011), who wrote the auction software as a special gift to the school. I have been so blessed to be a part of this team! (Karen Nolin Govett)
