Nov 11, 2011 | PowerUp meetings to be held statewide
The Kansas Sampler Foundation announced a slate of November meetings to be held around the state for 21-39 year olds who are rural by choice. The meetings are the public kick-off for the Foundation's PowerUp Movement.

PowerUps are 21-39 year olds who are rural by choice. The PowerUp Movement is about recognizing the value of PowerUps who have made a conscious decision to embrace and enhance the rural communities in which they live.

Foundation director Marci Penner said, "What makes this a Movement is the opportunity to create a new energy in rural Kansas by empowering the PowerUps with the encouragement and support from those of us 40 and older, the PowerOn group."

The meetings will be led by PowerUp Liaisons Liz Sosa, Garden City, or Erika Nelson, Lucas. Meetings are scheduled at the following times and places:

NOVEMBER 14, 5:30 p.m.
St. Joe Store, 2801 Noble Road, downtown St. Joseph in Cloud County
