South Hills residents have been sitting down together at "Around the Table South" gatherings to share a potluck dinner and discuss strengths and weaknesses of their community with the goal of finding ways to make it better. The series of 100 mealtime conversations held from October 15-19 were hosted by organizations, businesses, libraries, hospitals, school districts and other gatherings at various sites throughout the region. The Jefferson Regional Foundation and Jefferson Community Collaborative sponsored, “Around the Table South,” as a way for South Hills residents to make connections, share ideas and inspire action among people who live and work in the area.
The Jefferson Regional Foundation will collect and publish the insights, information and inspiration from the table discussions in a report in early 2019.
