Class 31 was connected from the first retreat, and the connections have only deepened since. It was amazing to see them come together to wrap gifts for families they adopted in our community. Lots of laughs, trips down memory lane and a true appreciation for each other. Cheryl Briggs shared "Leadership Springfield was such an amazing experience on its own but to see our group stay so connected, close and excited to give back was really amazing. Leadership Springfield isn't about just "our year" its about staying connected and using what we got out of our Leadership Springfield experience to better our community."
Carrie Brown said "Rather than just get together for a lunch or a happy hour, we thought it would be a fun idea to “Reconnect for a Cause.” One of our class members hosted us at her beautiful home and we were able to help 11 people have a little brighter of a Christmas. Our class really came together and everyone contributed. We had a great time getting together, sharing stories, and helping others in the process."
