The Barton Center has been selected as an honoree at Joslin Diabetes Center’s High Hopes Gala. The Gala is the centerpiece of Joslin Diabetes Center’s year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin.

We enjoyed good weather, fun, and good food at our Walk for Barton held on Saturday, October 16th.  Families enjoyed meeting Smiley and Woofster of the WooSox. If you would still like to donate to this event including to an individual fundraiser’s page or a team, please click here to donate.

We have been working extremely hard to open camp safely this summer. However, there are many circumstances beyond our control that we cannot overcome. Sadly, I am writing with the same heavy heart and great sadness that I did last year, although this year seems to sting a bit more as I am sure you will agree. At our recent board of trustees meeting, we voted to cancel overnight camps. This was not an easy decision. Please click here for more details.
