Last month, Ivy Hill Foundation, Inc. formed a team to create a holiday display for the Pearl S. Buck International Festival of Trees in Perkasie. Community organizations from all over Bucks County were invited to design and create displays that told their story and represented their Mission.
Our team connected our Mission and stories to Pearl S, Buck’s personal story of a disabled daughter (The Child Who Never Grew), and her love for the challenged, the less fortunate, and the horses she once owned.
Combining Ivy Hill’s “Horses + Love = Hope” with Miss Buck’s sentiment, “Hope Brings Comfort,” the Ivy Hill Team transformed Miss Buck’s bedroom into a compelling exhibit of the Ivy Hill Mission. Congratulations and thanks once again to the team of: M Grace Emmell Leister, Chris Brockett, Sarah Youngstrand, Rick Poole, Bud Leister, John Cochrane, Howard Peters-Strickland, and Questers Gaudy Chapter #270 members Donna Cochran and Anita Lamond for creating the design and quilts that brought us this recognition.
