The representatives all agreed that they were all working for a common, over-arching goal: to strengthen the community's ability to nurture all its members. They also recognized that the services that each group offers are part of that effort.
"In that respect, there is common ground," said Jeff Spencer, President of the Valley Recreation Association and Pastor at Tolt Congregational United Church of Christ (where the meeting was held).
"The question remains: Is there a way for us to work more closely with one another to empower our efforts?" Spencer added.
A second meeting is planned for Thursday, March 18, 7-8 pm. It will also be held at Tolt Congregational Church, 4851 Tolt Avenue, Carnation. Anyone interested in exploring how working together may strengthen their group is welcome to attend.
