Citizens of Geauga County Called to Participate

Geauga Community Impact is planning a fun, educational and interactive event for Geauga County residents. GCI will hold a Citizen’s Convention, Saturday, May 14, 2005 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm at West Geauga Middle School, located at 8611 Cedar Road, Chesterland. The event is open to all Geauga County residents.

Participants at the convention will learn the results from the comprehensive health and human services study that has been completed and provide initial input into a priority setting method for the issues identified. In addition, participants will be engaged in a process that will work to set a long-range vision for the health and human service system in Geauga County. David Abbott, executive director of The George Gund Foundation will provide the keynote address, ““The importance of community building in developing long term solutions to community needs.”

GCI is a collaborative initiative with The Cleveland Foundation’s Lake-Geauga Fund, Geauga County Department on Aging, Geauga County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, Geauga County Department of Job and Family Services, Geauga Family First Council and United Way Services of Geauga County. William Conway, chairman of Fairmount Minerals, LTD, is leading the project. “Geauga County is changing and we must determine the health and human service needs of our community to ensure we can address them effectively,” Conway said.

Don’t miss this opportunity! Plan to attend the Citizen’s Convention. This event is FREE, but reservations are a MUST! To make your reservation or for more information, please contact Kimm Leininger at 440-285-8097 or email to citizensimpact@hotmail.com.
