Time: 12:00 PM
It’s been a while since we last met as a big group, so it is a good time to come together for lunch “A taste of Benson”, and do a little Visioning 2.0.
WHO: Public Welcome - bring your ideas!
WHEN: Monday, April 22 at Noon
WHERE: Swift County GROW Building (former Clarks & former Lewis Drug location) at 1214 Atlantic Avenue in Benson.
Sharing this event is encouraged and Please RSVP for a lunch count by accepting this event or responding: Jen Frost, 218-330-7500 or Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org
I know there were many ideas from our first visioning session and some that have evolved since then. Please join for the opportunity to discuss what’s working, what’s not, and how we want to make an impact with broadband in our communities.
WANTED: PCs for People Coordinator!
You may recall that one of the benefits of being chosen a Blanding Broadband Community (BBC) is that we get 50 computers for families in need, from PCs for People. I’m looking for someone who’d like to be the coordinator for this project – or just help out. PCs for People has a process and program for working with schools to help place the computers with families of students based on enrollment in the school lunch program. I think this is a good strategy for Swift County assuming we can get a contact to work with at each school, (KMS, Benson, LQPV). PCs People would like to hold the give-away event in June (about 60 days out). If you’re interested in participating on this project – even if it’s not a lead role – please let me know!
And from the last session, here are the two projects have been rolled out thus far (flyers linked):
- Start Your New Career in Just 4 Weekends for FREE! Applications CLOSED
- Win $1500 of Digital Marketing Consulting for Your Business. OPEN to APPLY
Thanks, and hope to see you at the GROW Building for a Taste of Benson and Broadband Possibilities!
