A huge “Thank you” for helping to make Carden Country School’s 25th Anniversary Party such a rousing success! I was overcome with joy and gratitude as the evening began with friends reconnecting while mingling, our speakers sharing their Carden stories, and you raising your paddles in support of Carden and its legacy.
We would not have enjoyed such a memorable evening without the amazing efforts of Mrs. Elle Bullard. She single-handedly did the work of fifty people, and afforded the smallest detail her careful attention. Acting as our Masters of Ceremony, she and Mr. Bullard managed to engage the entire auditorium to raise their paddles, and over $45,000 was raised! I cannot thank you, our friends and parents, enough for your generosity. The teacher’s “wish list” will soon become a reality, and for that we are deeply grateful.
We prayed for a miracle, and God was listening. Our God is a great and mighty God!
Special thanks to Dr. Morris for taking wonderful photos during the event. And or course a big shout out to our FABULOUS TEACHERS for giving their time and talents for our outstanding auction items! Carden friend Hannah Ludlow volunteered her time to capture folks at check-in.

Thank you to Mrs. Ashley Henry-Pippinger for assisting with the floral arrangements; we will always direct traffic to Flowering Around. And thanks to our Carden gardeners who brought in beautiful greenery! I have also heard that the photo montage that Mr. and Mrs. Kinley created may soon be available for purchase. I will let you know as soon as I get more information. Carden Country School mugs are available in the office for $15, so stop by and pick one up!
Again, it is with a heart full of gratitude and love that I offer my sincere thanks to you and our Carden community for your encouragement and support of our students, our staff and our wonderful school!
With Joy and Blessings,
Mrs. Stephanie Rohl
Director - Carden Country School
