Let Your Voice Be Heard
We weren’t kidding when we said (last week) we are excited about the year ahead. We’re hoping, Flandreau, you will be too.
There are some fun developments in the works where local businesses are concerned. We’ll be talking more about these in the coming weeks.
There are also some big changes in store, and possible other opportunities developing where city and local government, including the FDC board is concerned. What do you want to see happen in the community? Do you want your voice to be heard?
Now may be a great time to make your voice heard.
Join us as we visit on January 15 with City Council in regard to the hiring of an Economic Development Director - why the FDC has felt someone full-time in that role is an important step for Flandreau’s future, and also learn why, after 3 years of conversations and finally some action towards that end, it’s now abruptly been put on hold.
Attend our next meeting and learn more about the other initiatives we have in motion, including a community wellness program we’re hoping to launch with the help of Wellmark, a renewed effort to bring the business community together in a new membership drive, the opportunities that may exist on our own board, and why it matters that you get involved.
One more thing, look for a possible community-wide brainstorm session we hope to have in the meantime. 2018 is going to be a fun year and we look forward to going about all of this with you.
