More than fifteen counties participated in our program of monthly community dinners which were open to citizens.  The purpose of these forums was to encourage bonds of trust and friendship, and a search for common ground on problems their communities face.  The Forums regularly provided programs of local interest and created opportunities for local collaborations, civic projects, political discussions, and conversation on local concerns.
