Jul 3, 2012 | Classes for Come & Get It site

Rural communities of any size are invited to be part of the "Rural Kansas: Come & Get It" collective promotion as organized by the Inman-based Kansas Sampler Foundation.

With a grant from the state's Division of Kansas Tourism, the Foundation was able to create a web site infrastructure that provides rural communities an inexpensive but functional avenue to promote what they have to see and do.  The result can be seen at getruralkansas.org.

A one day class is required from a community representative to make a town eligible to be on the site.Class content includes 1) how to research your town for explorer attractions, 2) how to write copy, 3) how to download pictures, 4) how to populate the site.The total cost for the class and to get your town on the site is $40.

Classes will take place from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in July 17 in El Dorado, July 18 in LaCygne, July 31 in Hays; and August 1 in Wamego.People can go to kansassampler.org for more information and to register.
