St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children has been caring for Virginia children in need for 65 years. In recognition of this history, we will present an anniversary dinner on Wednesday, March 24, at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott, with a reception at 5:30 p.m. and dinner starting at 6:30 p.m.
More than 260 friends, supporters, trustees, current and former staff and current and former families, as well as people who were adopted from the old St. Mary’s Infant Home, are expected to attend. Keynote speaker Fern Kupfer (that’s her in the photo) will talk about raising a child with disabilities, as captured in her poignant memoir, Before and After Zachariah (book signing to follow). There also will be a special announcement.
