03 Mar RURAL FUTURE? YOU BET WE KAN
“THE EMPIRES OF THE FUTURE ARE
THE EMPIRES OF THE MIND.”
You know that Marci Penner and the folks at the Kansas Sampler Foundation are always working on the health of the rural economy and working for the future. They have a long list of success stories and they have not given up yet.
Every other year they sponsor the WE KAN conference at Newton. Here people from all over Kansas gather with their problems, ideas, and solutions. They come to learn from each other and be inspired by each other.
Slots are filling up fast but for $75 you get a day of positive energy that you can take back to your communities and put to work. I have not been able to attend for a while but the seed for my books on Kansas History came from this gathering as well as the other seminars that they sponsor.
Most small towns are in dire straights but the difference between the successful and the failures is the energy, willingness, and imagination.
To cash in on all of this energy and bring it home with you go to www.kansassampler.org and sign up for the WE KAN CONFERENCE There is a bonus session on March 17 on child care with the main conference on the 18th.
If a day is worth turning your community around you need to sign p now and get to Newton on the 17th & 18th.
