Letter from our Dean
Dear Maple Village Community,
We are all still floating after our incredible Gala last week!! The entire night was spectacular - from indoor drinks and silent auction time, to dinner, the surprise Flash Mob for Lynne, heartfelt speeches, live auctions, and dancing until they turned on the lights. 
Thank you so much to Erin Lipeles and Andi Levine for being our Gala Chairs, putting in countless hours and supremely organizing everything! These two are a truly remarkable team. Thank you to Lee Gumbiner and MoLAA for donating our beautiful venue,  to Linda Galvan for donating linens, the Podrazas and Steven for organizing and donating the whole bar and bartenders, to Kari for chairing the decor and to her committee -  Tanya, Eunice, Meghan, Sasha, Kyle and Pat.  Thank you to Francesca for handling the music, to Robert Dameron for creating the Gala website, to all the Room Parents for organizing two baskets each, to Anton Striegl for speaking, and to so many of you who helped the day of the event!!
We send appreciation to all of you who came to enjoy the night and donate to our growing school. We all felt the love AND we made $30,000 PROFIT!
In other news...
