Join CCCF and CBICC to learn more about the Knight Foundation’s Soul of the Community Report

Centre County Community Foundation Executive Director Alfred Jones

The Knight Foundation’s Soul of the Community Report is a three-year study of the factors that lead to community attachment – or why people love where they live. By looking at this study, we can rejoice at the ways in which State College appeals to its residents and makes us proud of where we live, and we can also look at ways in which we can do more to make people feel even more connected to the community.

From 8 to 9:15 a.m. on Tuesday, June 28, at Celebration Hall, 2280 Commercial Blvd., in State College, as part of the Chamber of Business & Industry of Centre County’s Business Before Hours, Centre County Community Foundation Executive Director Alfred Jones and Deputy

Centre County Community Foundation Deputy Director Molly Kunkel

Director Molly Kunkel will present “Soul of the Community – Why People Love This Community and Why That’s Important to Economic Growth.”

Join us to learn more about the ways the Foundation plans to partner with the business and non-profit communities in Centre County to learn from this study and encourage activities that will continue to improve attachment and increase opportunities for economic development.

Attendees can also use their business cards to be entered in a drawing for a choice of lunch for 8 or dinner for 4 (includes beer and wine) compliments of Cara Mor Spa at Home Waters Retreat. It’s a $200 value!

The cost of the event is $13 per CBICC member or $25 per prospective member/guest. Please RSVP by Thursday, June 23.
