We are excited to invite you to our Common Issues/Common Threads 10th Anniversary Event on Thursday, August 16th at 11:30 AM at the Waccamaw Library! This year, the theme of our quarterly get-togethers is Community Building. In February, we experienced a panel discussion that brought forth ideas from different viewpoints in our community (namely the nonprofit sector, government sector, and community members) that gave us perspective on where Georgetown has been and where we as a community would like to be. In May, we approached the issue from a philanthropic viewpoint, analyzing community needs and how we as nonprofits can best leverage our assets and efforts to make a positive change in our community.
On August 16th, nationally recognized keynote speaker Anton Gunn will lead us in a discussion about “Raising C.A.I.N.,” explaining methods by which we can influence our communities on a personal and individual level. This event will be open to the public, so it is designed to encourage and empower community members to leave a lasting legacy on their community. We greatly look forward to this discussion, and are excited to see concept turn into action!
Anton has developed a one-minute promotional video for our event. You can find it here: https://youtu.be/UEXKCmS4pOk.
