Library to display regional anti-poverty award

CAP Services, at their annual award ceremony May 30, presented the Gaylord Nelson Anti-Poverty Award to the Project Promise collaboration. Michael Kenney, the Appleton Public Library's Marketing & Development Coordinator, and Paula Morgen of the ThedaCare Community Health Action Team, received this plaque on behalf of all the agencies who worked together on the project.

It was amazing to help make this major effort grow out of our community read. There are blog posts on the New Cybrary (the author visit, more about the author visit, the poverty simulation done by CAP Services at the library) so I won't recap it all here. It was a great collaboration also involving the Multicultural Center, Thrivent, the Emergency Shelter, FISC & others.It's encouraging that our collaboration received this recognition -- thanks to Nicole Harrison & the whole CAP Services gang for their ongoing efforts.
