Join us for Milldam’s 50th Anniversary Celebration

Friday, September 27th, 2019 from 7-9:30pm
Concord Free Public Library


2019 marks the 50th anniversary of Milldam Nursery School - fifty years of growing the roots of our families within our community, fifty years of successfully educating our children in a play-based environment, and fifty years of investing in the future of our school and town at large.

Each Milldam family has a unique story, but as one, we share the desire to provide our children with a secure foundation as they begin exploring their independence. Milldam’s strong connection to the community as seen in our collaboration with the Concord Museum, the Umbrella Community Arts Center, Concord Art, and the Concord Free Public Library, defines our school and molds our students into conscientious citizens.

To honor the success of the last 50 years, Milldam has embarked on a campaign to ensure the stories of our families and community continue to spark our imagination and empower our leadership.

We have selected two projects in honor of our 50th anniversary. The Concord Free Public Library, which embodies the values of our school, and a refurbishment effort to update our classrooms.

In collaboration with the Concord Free Public Library’s exciting renovation project, a generous Milldam donation will commission a large, bronze, ducky sculpture, an original work of art designed by the nationally acclaimed sculptor, Nancy Schön. Nancy is best known for the Make Way for Ducklings sculpture in the Boston Public Garden. This tactile gift, “Milly” the Milldam Duck will greet students and families in the CFPL’s newly renovated gathering areas, solidifying the mutually advantageous relationship between MNS and our community.

Additionally, a portion of our appeal will help ensure that the vision of our founding families from 50 years ago will continue with dignity for generations to come. Refurbishing our classrooms with new tables, chairs, and storage cabinets is an overdue and well deserved enhancement.

Our campaign strives to secure a total of $85,000. $50,000 will fund the Library sculpture, and the remainder will be allocated to classroom updates. Through this collaboration with the Library, Milldam once again exhibits its community commitment by its significant contribution to the Library’s Connecting our Community campaign, which serves to encourage partnerships between the Library and civic organizations.

Our success is based on fifty years of volunteer efforts and commitment from each of you! Thank you to all who came before. Please join us in support and honor of our beloved Milldam Nursery School!
