Braham Getting Involved in “Horizons” Program

Thursday, September 18th, 2008 at 10:49 am

Bringing people together to develop a common dialog has been the focus of the past year and a half as residents of the Greater Braham Area worked through a leadership training project with the Initiative Foundation. The next endeavor will be an 18-month project through the Horizons program of the U. of M. Extension Service. The focus is to develop systems to increase wealth and thereby reduce poverty, another chance to create a common dialog.

Gail Skolberg and Connie Reilly, past president of the Braham Area Chamber of Commerce, are spearheading the solicitation of 30 community members to make a participation commitment so that the community can qualify for a $10,000 grant.

Six facilitators will receive a modest stipend for work that begins as early as the end of September.

“If you are interested in being a facilitator and learning how to lead study circles stop by the Braham Country Floral shop and talk with Gail or Connie about this project,” says Valorie Arrowsmith of the chamber. “If you would like to be a participant instead of a leader, there are still room available in the program, so please let them know of your interest.”

For more information call Gail or Connie at 320-396-2188 or stop by the flower shop to sign up.
