The Campus and Community Children’s Center will conduct an open house and reception Saturday to recognize Executive Director Judy Metzger as she retires after 14 years of service to the children and families of the Fredonia region.

The reception will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday at Campus and Community Children’s Center, the corner of Temple and Brigham roads in Fredonia.

Metzger has been executive director at the center since 1999. During her tenure with the not-for-profit program, the Campus and Community Children’s Center has grown in size and reputation as a county model for quality early care and education.

The center provides early care and education for children 8 weeks through 12 years old. Part of the Metzger’s legacy is the new building on the northwest campus of Fredonia State University where the Open House will be held.
