Today Kate Dwyer, executive director of the Fourway Community Foundation, will talk about the organization's history and its future. She will highlight some of the organizations that have received grants this year. She also has a very exciting announcement to make. YOU are all going to be the first to hear this wonderful news. Hint: It has to do with this year's Louis Schultz award.
Now I want to talk about Kate herself. She is extremely talented and is the kind of person who posts in Facebook during a scary fire separating the Illinois Valley from Grants Pass, "If someone is stuck this side of the fire, I do have one more snuggly bed available." She brings food to community neighbors during snowstorms when people can't go anywhere. Below you can see some of her magical talents. Beside having an enviable garden full of veggies, she has tons of flowers. She also painted flowers on closet doors. And in the winter she makes felted wool booties for her family. She is the kind of person who is perfect for a community foundation.
