20th Anniversary Gala

The 20th anniversary celebration of the founding of Caregivers was held on October 3, 2008 at Promises to Keep for our major donors and the Caregivers’ past and present staff and board. We were especially honored to have in attendance Joyce Gray , the founding Executive Director of Caregivers. It was a wonderful evening with our special guest speaker, MaryEllen Jackson, the Executive Director of NH Center for Non-Profits. We also were honored with a proclamation from Governor John H. Lynch stating that October 3rd, 2008 was officially named “Caregivers of Greater Derry Day”. Cindee A. Tanuma, Caregivers Executive Director and Alan Hoffman, Caregivers Board President also made speeches thanking all of the donors in attendance for their continued support, and to staff and board members for their years of service. There was a Power Point presentation show with a collection of quotes and photos from Caregivers volunteers and clients.
