Acadia’s donors were recognized during the unveiling of a new donor recognition display in the lobby. Among those honored were Ralph Leonard and his late wife, Anita, from Old Town, for whom the Ralph and Anita Leonard Society for Planned Giving was named.
Anita’s Garden was dedicated in June 2013 in memory of Anita Leonard. It is the setting for an Andreas von Huene sculpture, Zephyr, created during the 2012 Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium, a gift from the Max Kagan Family Foundation. We are truly blessed to have the garden area. Countless people enjoy the space on a daily basis, many share extremely positive comments.
Some of Acadia’s young patients shared thank-you cards for those involved in making the Music and Wellness Program a reality.
Joseph and Suzanne Cyr’s generosity made possible the Cyr Interfaith Chapel at Acadia. The chapel, which was dedicated in November 2013, provides a space for spiritual enlightenment and solace, and offers a lovely view of Anita’s Garden. And, like the garden, it has served as a place of comfort and reflection for many people.
It is gratifying to note that the garden, chapel and other improvements are 100% financed through donations. The Leonard family has actually created an endowment to pay for the annual maintenance costs for the garden area.
