What went on within EAGC in November, 2015?
General Meeting 11/19/2015
At our November general meeting, Carol Chambers was presented with Volunteer of the Year Award by Pati Frew-Waters, Director of Seacoast Family Promise, a local non-profit organization , incorporated in 2003, to support families experiencing homelessness and living in poverty to find stable housing and regain and maintain their self-sufficiency. The 501(c) (3) nonprofit relies on a unique model, pioneered nationally by Family Promise and successful in 41 states.
Initially EAGC became involved with Seacoast Family Promise through our 2013 Mini-Grant program, and with the help of another member, Patti Elwell, their garden flourished. In 2014 Carol joined EAGC and began working as a Volunteer at the Family Promise Gardens. She continued her work there in 2015, not only planting and helping maintain the gardens, but working with the families who came to value her presence. We are proud that she is a member of our club.
