Effingham, Il – Effingham County ‘s forward-thinking Vision 2020 group has had a significant influence on Effingham County for almost fifteen years. As the year 2020 approaches, a community group has convened to continue the original work of Vision 2020, but to look now toward 2030, going by the name Impact 2030.
Creative Learning Culture is one of the impact area teams under Impact 2030.
The team hosted its second lunch and learn on January 11 at the Effingham Public Library to bring together all those in Effingham County who provide lifelong learning experiences to others, who cultivate creativity, inspire innovation and are passionate about personal growth, to share their organization’s mission.
