Glenwood News for Jan. 4

By the


WSU Horizon Project is to better our community. We are in need of at least 10 more individuals to get this started. If you are interested call Jensi Smith, 364-3519, Jay McLaughlin, 364-4198, Linda Williams, 773-6067, WSU Extension office, 773-5817, or Chris Kuhnhausen, 364-3627.

What is WSU Horizon Project, you ask? Well, Horizon is community education and training program aimed at providing local residents with the tools to create a thriving community and reduce poverty. The project is funded by a grant from the Northwest Area Foundation in St. Paul, Minn., with the mission of fighting poverty in rural communities in eight states.

The program consists of five phases starting with a spotlight and application process. Members of the Glenwood Community attended the spotlight and completed the application. We have been accepted and are beginning Phase III, which will include facilitator training and community discussion in "Study Circles." These "Study Circles" will begin in January. There is a great need for volunteers to participate in the organization and preparation part of this program.

Now, if you would like to help our community become thriving, call and volunteer your time. Residents of all ages and backgrounds are needed in the local circles. Call. Thank you.
