Annual Public Meeting and Celebration of Giving
Thank you to the Community
The Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation would like to thank all who attended our Annual General Meeting and Celebration of Giving on May 17 at the St. John’s Heritage Church Hall. It was wonderful to see so many community members come out to learn more about the LDB Foundation, help us celebrate the stories of our 2022 grant recipients, and congratulate our 2023 Spring Session recipients as they received their grants. It truly was an evening of sharing, celebrating, and networking with community partners.
In total, thirty-six community members representing 14 service organizations in our area attended the event. It was a most interesting evening and a wonderful way to celebrate the good things that happen in our community with many of the organizations that make those good things happen.
To learn more about the Foundation’s 2023 Spring Session grant recipients, please read the article below or check out the Grant Recipient’s page on this website. There are several photos of the APM and Celebration of Giving posted on our Gallery Page, as well.
