“Goodnight room, goodnight moon. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon...”

A children’s classic that already is a candidate for the all-time best feel-good book, “Goodnight Moon,” has gotten a boost: A University of Colorado Boulder team printed the first 3D version of it, allowing visually impaired children and their families to touch objects in the story -- like the cow jumping over the moon -- as it is read aloud.

Eight little five-year olds received their diplomas and tossed their sailor hats into the air as they “graduated” from Anchor Center for Blind Children’s preschool program on June 12.  Their happy voices sang their songs including the Hokey Pokey ending with a boisterous “Hot Diggity Dawg!!”  Claire practiced the words to the Bookworm Song so often that on the day of the performance, she had a sore throat!  Her parents confirmed that they, too, knew every word sung by Claire day and night.

Each child marched down the aisle independently including Izzie who, with help, pedaled his tricycle.  Maria couldn't wait to grab her diploma and Damien ran down as fast as he could and his eagerness brought laughter from all.  Sundka enthusiastically smiled and sang but her bright cheer of “Hot Diggity Dawg” brought down the house.

We wish each of these children Happy Sails into their future.

It was with sad hearts that we said farewell to our founding mentor and Anchor Center teacher,  JC Greeley, on June 12, at a tea party following our Preschool Graduation Day,  when she will stroll down retirement lane. For over 30 years, JC has guided and taught hundreds of blind and visually impaired children to "see life differently". Because of visionaries like JC and our Delta Gamma founders, an immeasurable difference has been made in the lives of thousands of blind children and their families.

The Judith Greeley Fund recognizes her dedication, passion and legacy of outstanding contributions to Anchor Center for Blind Children for the past 3 decades. The honorary fund will be designated to our literacy program and staff development. Our goal is to raise $32,000 -- $1,000 for each year JC has been here. Your gift will ensure that programs for visually impaired children remain forever anchored to the community and future generations.

“Choo-choo” says Jax as he plays with a wooden toy train in the Explorer Room at Anchor Center!  Jax’s parents signed him up for Anchor’s first respite night called “Anchor Night Watch”.  Ten student nurses and one nurse supervisor from Denver School of Nursing provided care for the 17 children ages birth through 13 while their parents had a night out!​
