Posted by Amy Vaughn on Mon, Oct 08, 2018

The Community Foundation for Crawford County held its annual meeting and celebration event last week at the Trillium Event Center in Bucyrus. Opening comments were made by Lisa Workman, President of the Foundation, to a crowd of about 77. Attendees learned about the book, “New Power” and listened to a video of its author, Henry Timms, who also created the international day of philanthropy and kindness known as #GivingTuesday. Workman encouraged the crowd to “take off our letterman jackets and harness the connections of our larger, Crawford County crowd.” She applauded local efforts that have produced an increase in Crawford County’s 20-29 age group population, as well as a 2% increase in the county’s education attainment level.
