Sep 7, 2011 | Register now for rural tourism class
The Kansas Sampler Foundation recently announced that a "Rural Kansas: Come and Get It" classes will be held Saturday, October 22 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Communities that want to have a presence on the www.getruralkansas.org web site, must take the one day class.

The "Rural Kansas: Come and Get It" program was designed by the Kansas Sampler Foundation to provide a collective promotion for rural communities, especially volunteer-led towns. Foundation staff Marci Penner and WenDee LaPlant will teach how to gather content for the site. Penner said, "Every community has explorer attractions in the areas of architecture, art, commerce, cuisine, customs, geography, history, and people. The class is designed to help a community see what they have that an explorer audience would appreciate."

In addition to assessment, class participants will learn how to download and resize pictures, how to populate and maintain the website, and how to start a Facebook page for your community.

The fee is $30 and includes lunch.  The class will be held at the TCT Solution Center at 923 West Main.  Those interested in learning how to help research explorer attractions may attend for free from 9-11 a.m.

To register, go to www.kansassampler.org or call 620.585.2374.
