Sunday’s WIN meeting was a wonderful time! Thank you to all the members that were in attendance and to all of our new members that came and signed up as well! We also want to thank all of the grant applicants and finalists for their proposals and their attention to often overlooked problems in their communities. All the dishes brought by our members and guests for the potluck were fantastic, too! We also cannot forget to thank our host, The Dickinson House in Oglesby, what a lovely venue! Our next meeting will be September 24. We have yet to secure a location for this meeting, but will let everyone know when a location is acquired. This meeting will focus on grant finalist presentations and discuss voting policies and procedure. Voting will open for paying WIN members in early October. Member votes must be returned to the SRCCF office, 718 Columbus Street, Ottawa, IL 61350. Votes may also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. After the voting period has concluded, grant money will be awarded to winners at the November Celebration Event! Keep Gathering, Giving and Growing WIN!
