From left, Sandy Obremsky, Beth Casselman and Diana Wharry chat at the Community Foundation of Boone County's Annual Meeting at The Sanctuary in Zionsville Thursday evening, June 28. The foundation celebrated its 20th year in 2011, and focused on its tagline “Make a difference, make it here.” CFBC President and Indiana Supreme Court Justice Steve David said he wants the community to see the foundation as a “want to” not a “have to.” He encourages everyone to give input. “It belongs to you,” David said. Although the economy hurt the amount of money the CFBC had available to give in 2011, the organization highlighted grants made to Donors Choose, the Boone County Child Advocacy Center and Gleaners Food Bank BackSacks program. Since 1991, the CFBC has made $17 million in community grants.
