These hard-working people were honored at our Founders Day celebration on May 21st.  The event was well attended by current and former parents and teachers, who enjoyed scrumptious desserts and touching tributes.  A generous donation was made to the Madera Garden by Esther Alder and Nancy Hendrickson (and friends) in memory of their friend and former Madera parent, Joan Cohn.  These women were active in the Madera PTA in the 1970’s!

As with any PTA event, many people contributed to making Founders Day a success.  Thank you to the following:
