Trego County ‘Strategic Doing’ continues June 18

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Trego County’s next “Strategic Doing” will be held at noon, Wednesday, June 20, at the Western Kansas Cooperative Community Room, 635 S. 13th St., WaKeeney. 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 three areas, which designated teams are now working to address. These areas include:

  • Community walking trail.
  • Community indoor pool.
  • Volunteer program to assist senior citizens.

Hosted in partnership with the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, Strategic Doing aims to guide Trego 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 Hardy Howard at 785-743-5791.
