Twenty-six Project LEAD participants graduated from the fall session on November 14. United Way is beginning the board matching process and has already made two placements. Do you serve on a board that is looking for new leaders? Email Joel Peterson to connect with Project LEAD graduates. Thank you to EY for sponsoring the fall session!


On November 2, Women United hosted the second annual SPREE: Shopping for Change. The event showcased local women-owned retailers and included an auction and a live painting. The $12,000 raised by the event benefitted the Community Fund.
