The Mount Blanchard Heart and Soul organization will be hosting a community summit for area residents from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. April 22 at 100 S. Main St., Mount Blanchard. The purpose of the summit is to share with community members the information that the Heart and Soul team has been gathering for the past several months, and to get their input about the data collected so far. More than 200 people who call Mount Blanchard home have been interviewed about their values, hopes and concerns, and action ideas for the community. Several themes have emerged as topics of interest, the Heart and Soul team said. The Heart and Soul principles are to involve everyone, focus on what matters, and “play the long game.” The summit is intended to bring people together to discuss and share ideas for the community and to develop Mount Blanchard Heart and Soul statements. It is an opportunity to get more participation from the community. The event begins at 1 p.m. with free food, entertainment by Riverdale Soundsation, and activities for children such as bounce houses and crafts. The first 100 residents to arrive will receive a free Mount Blanchard Heart and Soul T-shirt. Child care will be provided. After the meal, the summit will commence, led by John Livingston. A Heart and Soul grant of $140,850 was awarded to Mount Blanchard in March 2017 by the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation, which uses the process of Community Heart and Soul created by the Orton Family Foundation.
