The idea to create both The McHenry County Community Foundation, as well its parent The Chicago Community Trust, were sparked during a mealtime conversation. We are returning to our roots and looking to generate ideas, inspire solutions and cultivate collaborations to improve our community.
On Monday, May 12, thousands of Chicago-area residents – including many in McHenry County – will participate in intentional, mealtime conversations about the future of our communities as part of a region-wide initiative called On the Table.
These civic-minded conversations among colleagues, neighbors, friends or strangers will move beyond the heat of political debate, transcend news-of-the-moment gabfests, and progress toward meaningful ideas to strengthen our neighborhoods and communities.
If you would like to be a host, please contact Robin Doeden at The McHenry County Community Foundation at 815-338-4483. Visit www.onthetable2014.com to learn more.
