The Baywood Village Community Conversation is an event to provide stakeholders - ages 10 years old and up - of the Baywood Village community in Fairlee, MD (residents, those with authority to make decisions for the community, those with resources to support the community, etc.) a chance to discuss and discover similar ideas from which to work to create opportunities for Baywood Village.  The ideas and energy that come from this event will provide inspiration and resources for the community to build the future they envision for themselves and their families longterm. 

The Baywood Community Conversation is part of the year-long “Possible Dream Project”, which serves residents in the Baywood Village community by creating opportunities that foster self-sufficiency, leadership, and connection as they work to increase the quality of life that they desire for themselves and their families.

All costs of this program has been underwritten by the Jessie Ball DuPont Fund and the Good Neighbor Project of Old Trinity Church

South Dorchester County, MD is a sparsely populated rural gem on the Eastern Shore of Maryland bordered primarily by the Chesapeake Bay. In order for neighbors to connect many rely heavily on their churches, fire departments and post offices . In addition, the libraries, schools and sheriff's office in the region endeavor to reach out and support people in the community. However, many other regional services do not reach this area and while people in the community value self-sufficiency, there are services to which all are entitled. In addition, the community needs to be prepared for potential disasters, considering the area’s vulnerability to devastating floods.

Old Trinity believes it has a responsibility to play a leadership role in supporting the community and through the development of its Good Neighbor Project has attempted to reach out in the past with little success. Old Trinity seeks to be a catalyst to discover, with others, how we can make more connections and be good neighbors to one another in good times and in bad. As a new approach Old Trinity is working to bring together community and agency representatives using dialogue to brainstorm how we might be mutually supportive of community needs through the organizing and facilitation services of Sustainable Delmarva.

This "World Cafe" -style event will give the communities of South Dorchester County an opportunity to have important conversations and reveal common ground themes from which to work regarding meeting the needs of the region.  It's not your ordinary meeting. It will include dinner, a festive atmosphere, and a chance for all attendees to speak from the heart and listen to others by answering three important questions. A committee made up a few dozen key people who live and serve in the South Dorchester communities will have met three times to plan for the April 22 event. The hope is that this event will serve as the start of important inititiaves and relationships that provide long term benefits for the community.
