Caring for Caroline: Time to give!

$20,344 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 221 people in 1 month
Created March 21, 2018
As most of you know, for over half a century Caroline Paton, along with her late husband, Sandy, has brought music and joy to thousands through performances, special gatherings and sales of traditional and contemporary folk recordings on Folk Legacy Records.  

Now Caroline, at age 85, is facing new medical challenges and expenses. At this time, she is no longer able to live on her beloved Sharon Mt. hilltop home. She is healthy but has limited mobility.  We can make her present circumstances much better and bring her well-deserved comfort with our generous donations. With our financial support she will be able to have a vastly improved quality of life.   Sadly, songs will not be enough.
Your donations will be used for care-giver relief, transportation, delivery of meals, and medical care not covered by insurance.

For more information, contact Jackie Reizes or Sally Rogers by Messenger on their Facebook page.

Jackie, Howie and I met Caroline Paton at the Bull's Bridge Inn last night for an Irish Session led by her son, David. She led "It's a Pleasure to Know You" by Karl Williams. She's still singing strong, even though she's frail and in a wheel chair. To help support her respite care and medical expenses not covered by Medicare, go to https://www.gofundme.com/caring-for-caroline-time-to-give. Caroline and Sandy Paton started Folk legacy Records 50 years ago and got so many of us started in folk music. Time to give back!
