Community Development Workshop Set For Oct. 16 In Kearney
The Dorchester Times has learned about a workshop that includes powerful information to build hope and develop a plan for rural Nebraska communities.
The workshop literature states: "If your community members are interested in creating jobs, sustaining your community’s population, and inspiring others to relocate to your hometown, we have the perfect opportunity for you. We invite all city council/village board members, chamber/community club members, economic development professionals, as well as the 'movers and shakers' from regional communities to our upcoming event, where we ask you to 'Breathe Life into Your Town.'
"Come learn from Dell Gines, Senior Community Development Advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City-Omaha Branch, as he provides the how-to’s for expanding existing businesses and developing new businesses, and discusses the vital role that community partnerships play in this effort. Nicole Sedlacek, Director, Holt County Economic Development, will inspire you, with relevant and real world success stories from Holt County, ranging from growing new businesses to bringing young families back to rural Nebraska.
"There is no town too small to benefit from this workshop! Register today! The workshop will be held Thursday, Oct. 16 at the Kearney Ramada, 301 2nd Avenue, from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. Cost: $25 per person, dinner included. To register, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call (308) 995.3190 by Friday, Oct. 10."
