                “Never forget that no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world.  In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about.  So be that one person.”

- R. Buckminster Fuller


Dear Friends,


Here at Creative Living, we have seen the difference that one person can make with hard work and determination to change the lives of so many people.  This year Creative Living lost its beloved founder, Rosalie Ruggiero.  She leaves a lasting legacy that has been instrumental in helping so many individuals with developmental disabilities.

Creative Living has provided respite, social and life skills programs for young adults and adults with intellectual disabilities for 30 years at our beautiful farm house in Andover.  This year, with the help of our donors, we were able to create CLIP, a cooking class program; create new partnerships with SEEM Prep and Campus Academy and expand our current GetAways to include extended long weekends.

Please help us to continue to build on what Rosalie began so many years ago.  Will you be that one person that makes a difference at Creative Living?

Can we count on you to donate to the Annual Friends Membership Appeal?

Please return the enclosed donation envelope with a check made payable to Creative Living or make your donation on-line at

This year the Board of Directors chose not to run our Annual Feaster Five fundraiser due to the ongoing gas crisis in the Merrimack Valley and its implications for so many local families and businesses.  Now, more than ever, we need your help to keep Rosalie’s dream alive of enriching the lives of so many individuals with developmental disabilities.  Thank you for believing in Creative Living and supporting us over the years.

May peace and joy be with you and your family in 2019.



Lucille Giannone
