Fifty years ago, on July 7, 1969 the Dane County Parent Council broke off and became their own independent nonprofit. This year, Reach Dane, an organization providing early childhood care to low income families, celebrates 50 years.
Over the past five decades, the organization has grown, today serving 1,000 children at 18 locations.
