Saline County Strategic Doing Update

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

Saline County’s third Strategic Doing session was held on Thursday, February 15 at the Salina Innovation Foundation. Representatives from each of the 10 working groups gave updates on their projects and presented plans for the next 60-90 days. You can watch each group’s update in the videos below.

Hosted by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation and the Greater Salina Community Foundation, this was the third in a series of open community meetings aimed at guiding 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.

Anyone interested in joining a working group should call Brandee Mayginnes, director of grants and scholarships, at 785-823-1800, to connect with the group leader.
