A founding member of Women & Family Life Center, a volunteer at the center, and a local photographer and artist came together to share the beauty of the Guilford Green and raise funds for the Women & Family Life Center.

Photographer and artist Kate Mercer came to the center in October 2017 and shared her print of the Guilford Green with center volunteer Carol Baugh. The detailed print of the Guilford Green is a collage that was created by layering hundreds of Mercer’s photographs to create an aerial perspective of the homes and businesses surrounding the historic green. The collaboration on this project continued when Baugh took on the role of project manager while Shirley Girioni, a founding member of Women & Family Life Center, introduced the Howard and Michael Brown families to the project. The Browns underwrote the printing of the limited edition print of 160 pieces, which was sold at Breakwater Books on the Guilford Green.

On Dec. 6, 2018, the proceeds from the sale of these 160 prints were donated to the Women & Family Life Center. Mercer, Baugh, Girioni, and Liza Fixx presented a gift of more than $5,000 to the center. The funds from this gift will support women and families in crisis on the shoreline through the programs and resources provided by the Women & Family Life Center.
