TRAVEL

Mesa Verde: Ancient History, Timeless Beauty

Walk where thousands of ancient people lived more than a millennium ago; entire villages sheltered in the cliffside alcoves of a steep canyon. Perhaps spot wild horses roaming in the woods, on an 8,500-foot mountaintop. Where would you think this might be? Turkey? Australia? Africa? No: Colorado. Read More…

LIFESTYLE

Faces of Philanthropy: Special Education Legal Fund (S.E.L.F)

Autism. Dyslexia. Speech and language delay. Physical disabilities. Mental health challenges. Special education is complex – with its own language, acronyms, timelines, and legal standards. Ten years ago, Christine Lai and Ulrika Drinkall entered this arcane world to advocate on behalf of their own children. They came out the other side informed, energized, and with a mission. Last year, they formed the Special Education Legal Fund (S.E.L.F). Initially, S.E.L.F. only provided grants for legal support to families in need with children in the special education system. But as word of their organization spread, S.E.L.F. expanded to include even more resources. “Without our support, these families would have had no recourse in the legal system for what was happening with their children,” says Christine.

Faces of Philanthropy: Regional Hospice and Cynthia Emiry Roy

“We speak openly about what each patient wants and then honor his or her unique end of life journey,” says Cynthia Emiry Roy, MS, LCSW, CHA. Honesty, peace, compassion, dignity are more than words to Cynthia—they are the hallmarks of Regional Hospice, the first and largest nonprofit hospice in Western Connecticut. Whether taking care of patients in their own home or in the 36,000 square foot Center for Comfort Care and Healing, Cynthia and her staff push to make sure each patient’s last days are filled with grace and warmth.

Making Fitness a Lifestyle

“If the sun comes up, I have a chance.” – Venus Williams. One of my all time favorite ways to exercise is getting outside and making Mother Nature my workout partner. Fitness trends are showing that more and more people are opting out of the studio and large gym workouts and focused more on what they can do outdoors in any climate. Obviously a winter storm isn’t exactly ideal (yet go shovel the driveway and, trust me, your body will be sore). However, make sure you use your legs. Your back will thank you. Exercise is an antidepressant and being outdoors makes it that much more exhilarating. Read More…

Patricia Walsh Chadwick: Little Sister, Big Success

“I wanted to write the stories of my childhood because in another 50 years there would be no eyewitnesses to the social experiment that was St. Benedict Center,” and so Patricia Walsh Chadwick began the journey of writing her memoir, Little Sister. Published this April by Post Hill Press, Patricia tells the remarkable, often heart rendering, story of growing up in a religious community that became increasingly draconian and isolated. And how, at 17 years old, her life took an unexpected turn that lead to success in the world of finance. Read More…

Faces of Philanthropy: Jenny Baldock

“I am interested in non-profit boards that provide a vital public service, ideally locally, where I feel I can make an impact.  I look for boards that have positive, engaged board members, who also don’t take themselves too seriously or have a terrific sense of humor so that our time together is fun as well as rewarding.”  For more than 25 years, Jenny Baldock has been making a notable difference in Fairfield County. From Greenwich Emergency Medical Services (GEMS) to Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich, from Greenwich Library to Brunswick, Jenny embodies a potent combination of leadership, intelligence, and compassion.
