At 7:15pm, a short program began, with an introduction of the board of directors, and expressions of appreciation to Community Foundation donors. Organizations who received grants from CACF this spring were presented with grant cheques, while saying a few words about their upcoming projects. The presentation also allowed time for CACF board members to share various ways to support the community through gift giving.
WCGTV Carberry was in attendance for the program, and a recording will be available to WCG central region subscribers.
Following the presentations, donors, grant recipients and the board of directors enjoyed an evening of conversation and idea sharing.
