Each year a community member(s) is selected as a Garden Party honoree, in recognition of their commitment to our community. This year’s honorees are Ellie and David Cochran.

David has been Ellie’s foundation, quietly supporting her throughout the years as she immersed herself in numerous activities serving our community. She has served on many boards, including the YWCA, United Way, Derryfield School, Colby Sawyer College, Special Olympics NH, The Moore Center, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation-Manchester Region, NeighborWorks, NH Bar Foundation and Manchester Proud.

She served as Capital Campaign Co-Chair for Easter Seals NH and Elliot Hospital’s Cancer Center. Ellie was also named one of the first Trustee Emeritus of Derryfield School, and in 2014, she was named the Citizen of the Year by the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce. Ellie and David have been a pillar of support in Greater Manchester, and as such, we are thrilled to honor them for all they have done and continue to do.

Please join us in honoring Ellie and David Cochran on Thursday, June 23rd!
