Somewhere in your town there is probably a building that has been rehabilitated, repurposed, or made a community center. It might be an historic house, a school that was replaced, or even an abandoned barn. Now it is full of life, a community gathering place, and a point of pride for you and your neighbors.
Chances are, a group of community volunteers made this happen. Chances are, they raised the money, learned the ins and outs of planning, fundraising and rehabilitation, and helped in ways that surprised you.
How did they learn to do that?
