Take the Lead as one of Middlesex County’s Stars
CFMC-VRHS Interact Club “What if” Video/Photo Project
What If … what if all children could have books of their own? What if your town had a community garden? What if affordable housing was available throughout our region? What if every child had access to creative arts programming? What if we could eradicate bullying?
Everyone has a “what if” they would like to see happen in their community – that one issue, one need that could be solved to make life better for everyone. The Community Foundation of Middlesex County wants to know what your “what if” is. Valley Regional High School Interact Club is partnering with CFMC on a video and photo project – hearing and sharing all the “what ifs” in Middlesex County during a community-wide video day at Deep River Public Library.
Take the lead and be a star in CFMC’s “What If” and “What Matters” video project. Share with our community:
“What If” – what if you could solve one issue in your community – what would it be?
“What Matters” – beyond family and friends – what matters to you in your community?
You know your community best. CFMC and VRHS Interact Club want to hear, and share, your ideas with our friends and neighbors in Middlesex County.
Everyone, from every town in Middlesex County, is invited to stop by the Deep River Public Library on Saturday, May 3, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., and share your “what if” and “what matters” about your community.
VRHS Interact Club members will work with CFMC to create short videos and photo collages of your “what if” and “what matters” statements. We will share them with the community at large through our website and e-news editions, local media channels, and our nonprofit partners. This project will also help CFMC identify issues affecting our region and work with nonprofit organizations and funding partners to make a positive impact in Middlesex County.
It only takes a few minutes to be a star in Middlesex County – please join us between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Saturday, May 3, 2014, at the Deep River Public Library, 150 Main Street, Deep River.
