Big Turnout, High Energy
Over 125 people came out on Monday night, March 2, to share their hopes and dreams about topics submitted in advance by community members.  This year's turnout was one of the largest yet, and included more young adults than ever before. New leadership voices, new connections, new partnership ideas, and a strong spirit of cooperation were evident in the group discussions and quick reports.
