To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we featured important people from our history. Some may still be here while others have moved on to do other things in our community. The people are important and we are grateful for their service and the contributions they made while here.

We also held an Open House on Thursday, April 13 featuring a ribbon cutting, special recognition from across the Commonwealth and within, and many stories over the 50 years.

On Friday, September 29 we hosted a Coffee Hour in partnership with the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce with speaker, Dr. Dana Crosby, a former parent of a child in our program.

Finally, in December 2023 we sponsored the show, Magic Tree House Collections “A Ghost Tale for Mr. Dickens Jr” in partnership with SkyPAC and BG On Stage. Included in the sponsorship, we were able to provide school-day performances for BGISD and WCPS.

Thank you for helping us celebrate our unforgettable 50th year! To our employees: your dedication and hard work have been the backbone of our success. And to our wonderful community: your support has been the heart of our journey. Here’s to the next 50 years of serving together and lifelong learning!
