The Putnam County Community Foundation annual meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 20 at The Inn at DePauw.

Sponsored by Prime Real Estate Group, Hendricks Power Cooperative and Wabash Capital, the annual meeting celebrates the positive impact of philanthropy and philanthropists in our community.

In addition, the annual meeting celebrates the Community Foundation’s openness and accountability to the community as a formal membership organization. Members – anyone who gives to the Community Foundation of their time, talent or treasures – must elect the board of directors and approve changes in the bylaws.

The chocolate box raffle has been a tradition at the annual meeting since 2008 and is made possible by local business philanthropists who donate unique gifts. Lynda Dunbar, owner of Completely Nuts and Candy Company is donating 100 boxes of homemade chocolates. Shuee’s Furniture and Mattress owners Bill and Brent Shuee are donating a high-leg recliner and Mason Jewelers owner Steve Mason is donating a half-carat diamond pendant set in a decorative white-gold mounting.

This unique raffle event will close the meeting and provide a special thank you to Community Foundation members who do so much for our community.
