On Dec. 5, Findlay Young Professionals will celebrate the end of another year of fellowship and community service with their “Jingle and Mingle”-themed holiday party.
Throughout a given year, FYP, an affiliate of the United Way of Hancock County, holds monthly committee meetings, an average of eight professional development events (such as lunch-&-learns,) and ten happy-hour/social events where they raise awareness of local charities. Often representatives of the charities are invited to give presentations to share the ways FYP members might get involved. The typical FYP event attracts approximately forty attendees, both members and non-members. FYP, which was founded in 2012, has no political or religious affiliation. According to member Suzie Reineke, FYP “engages young professionals in Hancock County to help facilitate personal and professional networking and development regardless of” their career type. In other words, anyone is welcome. -KT
