Next Saline County ‘Strategic Doing’ to be held October 2

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018

Saline County’s next “Strategic Doing” session will be held at 1 p.m., Tuesday, October 2, at the Salina Public Library’s Prescott Meeting Room, 301 W. Elm St., Salina.

During this session, working groups will have the opportunity to share project updates, ask questions about funding and determine next steps as they continue to move their projects forward.

Over the past year, Strategic Doing participants have identified and prioritized community needs into 10 areas: adult education and employment training; affordable housing; a pre-school for the Ell-Saline school district; early child services; environmental education; local foods; community marketing and branding; mental health services; a nonprofit incubator; and public transportation. Anyone interested in joining a group to work on one of these topics is encouraged to attend.

Hosted by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation and the Greater Salina Community Foundation, Strategic Doing aims to guide Saline County residents through the process of prioritizing, planning and implementing sustainable community improvement projects. Projects and ideas that develop from these meetings will be eligible to apply for funding from Dane G. Hansen Foundation Community Grant Fund at the Greater Salina Community Foundation or directly to the Hansen Foundation.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP here.
