Live Algoma was represented well at the Communities Joined in Action national conference in San Antonio, Texas last week. Jody Anderson from Succeed Health and Claire Thompson from the UW-Extension Office in Kewaunee County presented a breakout session titled “Developing Collective Impact from Grassroots”. Anderson says the opportunity to share the story of the Live Algoma initiative and what it is dong for the community was special.
Live Algoma just completed the “freeze the gain” challenge earlier this year. A community conversation is planned for March 22 that will highlight a lot of the bright spots of activities that are going on in Algoma and hopefully spark interest in improvement projects, according to Anderson.
