Residents in LaHarpe, Moran and Humboldt will learn Wednesday what accompanies their recent designation as PRIDE communities when Trudy Rice, a Manhattan-based extension associate with the Kansas PRIDE program, speaks at 7 p.m. at the former LaHarpe Elementary School gymnasium. The public is invited.
PRIDE offers a community-based approach to improving quality of life by encouraging citizens to work together to identify and take on improvement projects. It also offers a network of ideas along with tools and resources needed to achieve various goals.
“Trudy will explain what each community’s next step should be,” said Sunny Shreeve, program director for Thrive Allen County, which assisted each town with developing PRIDE programs.
PRIDE is administered jointly through the Kansas Department of Commerce and Kansas State University Re-search and Extension.
