The Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation has announced two upcoming events for the month of June.
Join the foundation on the Saturday, June 8 for the first ever NCCF Applebee's Flapjack Fundraiser. Then, on Monday, June 17, help celebrate another successful year at the annual meeting and the presentation of the prestigious George B. Weaver Jr. Footprints Award.
On June 8, start the Saturday by enjoying flapjacks while supporting NCCF and its Service Learning Project. This pilot program currently offers mini-grants to teachers in the Fredonia School District who encourage teaching and learning strategies that integrate meaningful community service for students. If successful, the program will expand into other school districts.
NCCF volunteers will serve flapjacks from 8 to 10 a.m. at Applebee's on Vineyard Drive. There will be balloons for the children and door prizes for everyone. Tickets are $5 and are available by calling 366-4892, visiting www.nccfoundation.org, e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or stopping by the office at 212 Lake Shore Dr. W., Dunkirk.
Monday, June 17 is the date of the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation's annual meeting. Attendees will receive updates on NCCF's philanthropic successes and future strategies. The votes are still out on the George B. Weaver Jr. Footprints Award, but join the celebration of another wonderful individual or organization's contribution to Northern Chautauqua County. JCC North Training and Conference Center on Route 60 will host the event again this year from 4 to 6 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
NCCF hopes the public will join in both events, as they are important to the mission of the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation. Feel free to call the office at 366-4892 with questions on either event or visit www.nccfoundation.org.
The NCCF is one of nearly 700 community foundations in the United States today. Founded in 1986, NCCF is dedicated to improving the community through the promotion of local philanthropy, strategic grantmaking and community leadership. Served by a small staff and governed by an all-volunteer board of directors, the organization has distributed over $8.8 million in the form of grants and scholarships within the community. Truly community in nature, the NCCF is an organization created by and for the people of northern Chautauqua County.
