Barbara's Retirement Getaway Fund

As you are now aware, Barbara Mekrut is officially retiring after 23+ years.   Although we have planned an evening reception in her honor on July 20th ( Sacred Heart University  5pm-8pm),  the NE Metro Region and friends would like to say "We Will Miss You" in another fashion as well.

This GoFundMe account is an opportunity for each of us to send Barbara off in style - to spend as she wishes -  although I hear a trip to Aruba is on top of her list.

Please feel free to "contribute" whatever is most comfortable for you, as there is no minimum or maximum (side note:  GFM charges an additional 7.9% fee on top of your donation).

Since we would like to present this gift to Barbara on the day of the reception, kindly consider this opportunity no later than Monday July 18th.
