Community Foundation of Swan Valley (CFSV) normally holds a spring granting evening this time of year. With COVID-19 restrictions still limiting public gatherings, the group held a ‘drive-up’ event to showcase the wonderful projects either happening or planned for the Swan Valley. The event was not open to the public but rather the grant recipients from fall 2020 and spring 2021 attended an outdoor time slot for a photo opportunity with Directors from the CFSV Board.
