Save Mingea Cottage and VES Heritage

Do you remember Studio Art in Mingea Cottage, your escape to the infirmary because you were "sick," or your first kiss on the lawn in front of the old white farmhouse?  

Mingea Cottage, VES’s oldest building, has seen the school's entire history play out and its presence as the oldest part of VES's campus gives it an institutional de facto landmark status.  It is a touchstone of history for all of us who have been students and faculty there.

What makes VES special that might inspire its alumni to give?  Of course, our teachers and the friendships we formed matter most, but it is the spaces we remember, steeped in history and tradition, that elicit sentiment and pride and motivate the generosity of alumni.  Please help remind VES that Mingea matters by signing the  below petition.  

Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.  - Proverbs 23:10
