APM and Celebration of Giving
Thank you to the Community
The Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation Board Members would like to thank all that attended their Annual Public Meeting and Celebration of Giving on Wednesday, May 18. We are pleased to say that that the St. John’s Hall was full.
A special thank you to each of the presenters from those organizations that received Foundation grants in 2021. Thank you also to HEROS Alliance for speaking about the Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF) grant that they received in 2020 through a partnership of the LDB Foundation with Community Foundations of Canada and the Canadian Government. Each and every one of the presentations was most informative. The stories told of the positive impact that these grants have had on each of the presenters’ organizations and the citizens of our community were both powerful and touching to hear.
We would like to thank everyone that participated and attended the event. It truly was a wonderful opportunity to share, celebrate and network with our community partners, grant recipients, and interested community members. We are already looking forward to next year’s celebration.
