Board president Bill Hunderford introduced guests and agencies represented.

Robert Waters thanked the board for a one-time donation last summer to the Sandstone Society.

''The donation you made to get us started gave credibility to this community's first endowment fund,'' Waters said.

Other guests included Judy Koehler, president of United Way of Eastern Orleans; Chris Fix, campaign associate from United Way of Genesee; and Medina Mayor Adam Tabelski.

Jim Fletcher spoke to the audience about how he learned to read from Orleans County Adult Reading Services, one of the 16 agencies funded by United Way of Western Orleans.
