Community Lifeline Center identified a series of “Beliefs and Values” that guide the overall mission, the services provided clients, and the ethos of the people who work and serve CLC. One of the beliefs and values is: “We strive to provide community involvement and service opportunities”.
Goodness in service to others.
That value was evident at the first annual CLC “Service Gathering” held last week. The charity benefit was themed “Serve With Friends” and featured a Words With Friends tournament. The turnout filled The Flour Mill; old and new friends of Community Lifeline Center were in attendance, including Mayor Brian Loughmiller, who read a mayoral proclamation naming March 1, 2012 Community Lifeline Center day. Ticket sales, donations, and a silent auction of some very nice donated prizes, will all go a long way in supporting the services that Community Lifeline Center provides. The event was a success on every measure, especially in bringing the organization closer to those who generously support the CLC mission.
The event was conceived and organized by Sharon Hagen and Kathy Moore. Its success was built upon the involvement of too many volunteers to mention by name. Volunteers whose only motive was to enable the many Community Lifeline Center clients in need of support during a crisis; volunteers, who not only donate their time and money day in, day out, but at night, too.
One of the many definitions of goodness is “The best part of anything: its essence or strength”. The best part of the community we live in was on display last Thursday: friends and neighbors practicing what Community Lifeline Center stands for: “Help. Hope. Here.”
We’d love to hear your feedback on the event.
