A Message from the Executive Director – April 2019

As I reflect back on my first year at WindReach Farm, the first message that I would like to convey is a heartfelt thank you. WindReach Farm is a place like no other. Everyone that comes up our driveway, whether a participant, volunteer, sponsor, staff member, or a friend of the farm, has one thing in common: a desire to contribute to something larger than themselves. This has been evident since my first day, and I have been truly blessed to be so warmly embraced by all of our stakeholders.

As we look back at the last 30 years, and plan for the next 30, we will be looking to grow and expand our knowledge base and expertise in delivering the kind of high quality, therapeutic programming that our user groups come here for and deserve. We will be putting more structure in place to ensure that we are communicating with all of our stakeholders more frequently and effectively. We will be exploring avenues to reach more people in the community who can benefit from our services, and looking to engage more partners to contribute to the life-changing programs that we offer. We will also be re-connecting with our users to ensure that the programming we provide aligns with their needs.

Please join us in celebrating our 30th anniversary this year by coming to our open houses on April 27th, October 19th, and December 7th; enjoying the festivities, including the SuperDogs at our Founder’s Day celebration on June 18th; and our annual fundraising dinner, A Night at WindReach Farm on September 21st. WindReach Farm is also offering individual and family memberships and will be making more use of our facilities on evenings and weekends (contact us for details on both). Finally, we want to hear from you, and welcome our community to let us know what will make your visits more enjoyable, and better meet the needs of participants within our programs.

As we hopefully bid adieu to winter, we hope to see all of you up at the farm very soon.
