The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore will host its 32nd Annual Meeting and Report to the Community on Friday, November 4, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Fountains Conference Center in Salisbury.
The annual meeting is an opportunity for the Foundation to celebrate the community’s success in supporting philanthropy on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore. The Foundation also reports on its activities during the past year in providing grants for local nonprofit organizations, scholarship awards, a variety of nonprofit support programs, and other initiatives that improve the quality of life for the citizens of Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester Counties.
Other highlights of the meeting include the election of Foundation officers and the presentation of three of the region’s most prestigious awards in the nonprofit community – the Henson Award for Nonprofit Excellence honoring the year’s most outstanding nonprofit organization, the Frank H. Morris Humanitarian Award honoring an individual for uncommon philanthropic service to the community and the Mary Gladys Jones Volunteer of the Year Award that recognizes an individual who has made outstanding, sustained and unselfish contributions in the field of direct community service.
Over 300 persons attended the Community Foundation’s annual meeting last year. Due to limited seating, early registration is encouraged. The public is welcome to attend and registration for the Annual Meeting is $25 per person. Anyone interested in attending the meeting and luncheon may register online at www.cfes.org or call the Foundation at 410-742-9911.
