Event Details

What's the "spark" that shaped the lives of our local leaders? Hear from a different speaker each month as they share their "Spark Story,"  the specific experience that sparked them to create change in the community. In addition, we’ll hear details about the work they are doing and what keeps them motivated to stay involved.
