• We encourage you to think ahead to Smoky Valley High School’s second annual community service effort on Wednesday morning, April 19. Student teams will be available that morning to do all manner of jobs to benefit the community, college, businesses and organizations, and individual and public properties. It’s part of the school’s emphasis on character and team building. Thank you, SVHS students and staﬀ. We are grateful for your help! Students will be supervised. Ideally, they would work in groups of 15, but also could work in groups of seven. Get your requests in early, folks! Pitch your ideas to Lana Charvat, counselor, email@example.com, or Joyce Peterson, SVHS college/career advocate, firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know of a homeowner who could use help with, say, spring outdoor cleanup, now is the time to get them connected with SVHS. Also think person-to-person jobs such as playing games with a child or elder, preparations for events, and such. Not every job can find a team but let’s generate as many options for SVHS as possible. The touch of the young. #SVstrong
• Have you noted the involvement of younger leaders in Lindsborg lately? We have — and are massively thankful for it. Cases in point: 1.) younger women are the fresh energy behind this Friday’s debut of “Makers Street: Lindsborg Art Walk.” Makers Street is a new every-second-Friday event along Main Street from 5-8 p.m. that celebrates the creative. Hope you’ll support this new eﬀort — if not Friday, Feb. 10, then in future second Fridays. Please, do put them on your calendar. 2.) younger leaders continue to help push the Lindsborg Arts Council’s work in arts performance, display and education. Hope you’re planning to come to the door of the LAC’s Chocolate Lovers event at 7 p.m. Saturday, at the J.O. Sundstrom Center. $20 gets you a fine evening of light appetizers, a mystery game, photo ops, old friends and new acquaintances, and a lively auction of experience packages, art and more.
• Have you liked, shared, commented on, or written a Facebook post recently about something you like about Lindsborg? An upcoming event, community eﬀort, service or experience? Look for information soon about how you can be more intentional the new “Let’s Get Social,” an Ad Hoc eﬀort to encourage crossing your use of social media cross-promotion for the benefit of all. Individuals, organizations and businesses can all take part. #lindsborg #lbk
• Reminder: Higher Learning Commission reps will be on the Bethany College campus and in the community through Wednesday morning.
