BPCC Celebrates 25 years of service
This spring the Brattleboro Pastoral Counseling Center was blessed to celebrate our 25th year of offering high quality counseling at affordable costs to the Brattleboro community and the surrounding towns.  The celebration took place at the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in West Brattleboro. We would like to thank all the people who worked hard to making this a successful evening.

Margaret Fogg, former Board President, was the emcee for the evening.  Founding members Edward and Judith Flowers and therapist and early administrative director, Gary Pitkin were recognized during the event they spoke of their experiences beginning the Center and the obstacles that they had to overcome to make it a successful venture. In addition, Board President Doug Reed presented letters of appreciation.  Leslie Kinney spoke about Pastoral Counseling and what it has meant to her being a part of this organization as she leaves her position after six years as Director of BPCC.  She was also recognized for her work at the Brattleboro Pastoral Counseling Center.

After the formal statements were made people from the audience just began telling their own stories and sharing memories of their time here at the Center. 
We all agreed that we are ready for the next 25 years!
