Our speaker Wednesday, September 20th was Ms. Catherine Kennedy from Columbia Green. Columbia Green is a non-profit in the Midlands that does exactly what its name implies. They make Columbia Green by planting flowers, giving out grants for tree planting, giving out grants for neighborhood planting, etc. Ms. Kennedy currently serves on Columbia Green’s board as the President. She spoke to us Wednesday morning about all the wonderful things this organization is doing and how they are raising money to continue to do these amazing things.
