Annual Public Meeting and Celebration of Giving

Thank you to the Community

The Lac du Bonnet & District Charitable Foundation board members would like to thank all who attended our Annual General Meeting and Celebration of Giving on May 15 at the Notre Dame du Lac Catholic Church basement.  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 2023 grant recipients, and congratulate our 2024 Spring Session recipients as they received their grants. It truly was an evening of sharing, celebrating, and networking with community partners.

In total, thirty-eight community members representing 15 service organizations in our area attended the event. To be in the same room with so many dedicated volunteers from a cross section of the many organizations that serve our community was inspiring.  What a wonderful way to celebrate the good things that happen in our community with many of the organizations that make those good things happen.
