In October 2014 Fairmead Community & Friends received a grant for board members and Fairmead residents to attend a three-day training event at the NeighborWorks America – Community Leadership Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio. The training aims to strengthen the voices and skills of community, resident and volunteer leaders.
Groups that attended were eligible for an additional $2,000 grant for projects that they discussed at the training event. Fairmead Community & Friends was awarded this grant too! We are so grateful to have had this learning opportunity and the grant writing support of Eddie Ocampo at Self-Enterprises, Visalia.
Thank you Eddie!
Fred and Dorothy has made an effort to better the community they live in for many years, and they have always done it with worship, wisdom and respect for others. We’ll miss them.
