Big Kansas Road Trip public meeting to be held

Submitted by Kylee Luckeroth

The Big Kansas Road Trip (BKRT), a creation of the Kansas Sampler Foundation, is coming to Brown, Doniphan and Nemaha counties May 7-10, 2020. This event brings travelers to the selected counties to learn about rural communities through first-hand experiences.

All that is required of each town is to just be themselves. The folks that attend this event have an exploring spirit and are interested in the unique qualities that make a town, business or attraction interesting.

We will be hosting an informational meeting with Marci Penner and WenDee Rowe of the Kansas Sampler Foundation, at 7:30 p.m.  Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Nemaha County Community Building in Seneca. This meeting is open to everyone and will be an overview of what the BKRT is all about.

Additionally, there will be meetings in Doniphan and Brown counties, at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the Troy Public Library; at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the Wathena Community Building; and at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Carwell Building at the Ag Museum in Hiawatha. Anyone from any of the counties is welcome to attend whichever meeting fits their schedule.

It is a thoughtful audience that attends the Big Kansas Road Trip. They create their own itineraries and go at their own pace. They love eating in local cafés, visiting with the locals, shopping, learning, seeing attractions and traveling backgrounds.

We hope that you will be able to attend this informational meeting to learn all the benefits that the Big Kansas Road Trip will bring to Nemaha, as well as the other two, counties.

The Kansas Sampler Foundation is a non-profit with a mission to preserve and sustain rural culture, they are based out of Inman in McPherson County.
