Join us September 26, 2017, for Lake County’s On the Table, an exciting county-wide conversation to explore the ways in which we can collaborate in order to make Lake County stronger, safer and more dynamic.
We invite you to take part in On the Table by sharing a meal with your friends, family, colleagues, or neighbors to discuss what is happening in your community – both the positive work and challenges. Anyone can be a host! Hosts may choose to have a meal in their homes, offices, or places of worship; and meals can range from catered breakfasts to potluck dinners to coffee and cookies. The format and the topics discussed are up to you.
Be part of the conversation. Your Voice Matters.
Legacy Foundation is one of 10 community foundations across the U.S. replicating the On the Table initiative this year with funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Support for On the Table is one part of Knight Foundation’s efforts to help cities attract and keep talented people, expand economic opportunity and create a culture of civic engagement. The Knight Foundation believes that successful communities are equitable, inclusive and participatory.
