Rooks County ‘Strategic Doing’ continues June 19

Friday, May 25th, 2018


Rooks County’s next “Strategic Doing” will be held at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 19, at RCHC Education Center, at the corner of U.S. 183 and Kansas Highway 18 in Plainville. The meeting will include information about writing strong grant proposals and how to secure funding from various available sources.

This event is open to current Strategic Doing teams, as well as others in the community who would like to learn more about the projects and the process. During previous Strategic Doing meetings, participants have identified and prioritized community needs into five areas, which designated teams are now working to address. These are:

  • 3/50-Buy Local Project
  • Mainstreet Revitalization Project
  • Annual Countywide Celebration
  • Community Daycare
  • Broadband Access

Hosted in partnership with the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, Strategic Doing aims to guide Rooks County residents through the process of prioritizing, planning and implementing sustainable county-wide community improvement projects identified by community members at-large. Projects and ideas that develop from these meetings will be eligible to apply for funding through the Dane G. Hansen Foundation Community Grant Fund at Heartland Community Foundation or directly to the Dane G. Hansen Foundation.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to board members Sally Lowry at 785-425-6734 or Cathy Ramsay at 785-737-3590.
