Strategic Doing Meeting

Just a reminder that our next Strategic Doing Meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 21st, 7pm at NCK Tech Student Union.

Betty Johnson will meet with us again as a large group next Wednesday.  During that meeting each group will report back on your progress, what you have accomplished, where you are headed in the next 30/60/90 days and what you have learned.  During those reports you will have time to ask questions, get ideas and comments from others at the meeting.  This will be a time to look at any overlap of projects, break down silos and build collaboration where possible.

It is exciting to see these projects start to come to life and witness the collaboration happen.  Be sure to reach out to others who may want to be a part of this opportunity in Mitchell County.  As always, please let Heather know if you need help.

Thank you for being a part of something new to help Mitchell County grow!

NCK CASA

ATTENTION!  April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.  NCK CASA will be raising awareness about Child abuse once again and invites you to join us.  Every child deserves to have a happy childhood.  Join us in promoting child abuse prevention this April.

Why we do this?  Children in our community are being abused and neglected.  Abuse cases filed in 2017, per county:  Cloud-77; Mitchell-32; Republic-14; Lincoln-14; Jewell-6.  These are only the new cases filed in 2017 and do not include ongoing cases from previous years.

NCK CASA is part of a national program that recruits, trains and supports community volunteers to advocate for these children and speak up for their best interest.  Once CASA volunteers are trained they are appointed by a judge to a child’s case.  With staff support, CASA’s are able to make a difference in the lives of children in the communities we serve.

Prevention/Awareness:  Many of you are familiar with the April awareness/prevention campaign we launched last year.  Community involvement not only amazed us at NCK CASA but gained interest at the state level.  We are truly blessed to have participation and support from our community and hope you are able to join in this year’s events.  To better prepare for April we have an order form for items available for purchase to show your support.  This is not a fundraiser for CASA.  These items are sold at our cost to make awareness/prevention the main focus.

Wear Blue Day:  We have several activities planned for April and will kick off the month with our Wear Blue Day event.  Friday, April 6th is National Wear Blue Day and we plan on doing just that with help from you.  Blue shirts are available for purchase or wear your own.  We ask that you take a picture, post it on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, #nckcasablueday.  Make sure to like our page, NCK CASA so we can share it on our FB page.

Schools participating in Blue Day:  Concordia CES-CMS-CHS, Glasco K-12, Miltonvale K-12, Clifton-Clyde K-12, Beloit Elementary and Republic County Elementary.

Super Hero Fun Run:  Saturday, April 7th.  Registration forms will be available soon.

OLDER KANSAN’S DAY IN TOPEKA SET FOR FEBRUARY 13

On Tuesday, February 13, 2018, North Central-Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging (based in Manhattan) will be hosting their annual “Older Kansan’s Day at the State Capitol”. This is an invitation to you, your friends, and anyone else interested in Senior Issues, to meet at the State Capitol on that day, and express your opinion on issues important to you, and to Kansas Seniors all across the state.
The day will begin when you meet with NC-FHAAA members in the State Capitol sometime between 8:00 and 9:00 AM. Appointments with your State Legislators can be scheduled in the morning, usually in groups of 3-5 people. They will also provide each person with “talking points” on the positions of the Kansas Association of Area Agencies on Aging and Disabilities (K4Ad), as well as vital statistics on the value of senior programs in the State of Kansas. These are merely starting points that you can use when meeting the State Legislators, but you are not restricted to these points. Any issue that concerns you is certainly open for discussion, and you are welcome to state your position on any of those concerns. We especially want to focus on issues important to seniors that day, but you are not restricted to just those issues.
Each appointment with the State Legislator will be for approximately 15-20 minutes, at which time another group will be scheduled to meet with that legislator. Since the Kansas House of Representatives convenes daily at 11:00 AM, the appointments with House members will only last until about 10:45. Appointments with members of the Kansas Senate can continue, as the Senate does not convene until after lunch (around 1:30 PM).
At lunch, attendees will meet on the second floor of the State Capitol, where a box lunch will be served to all those participating in the event, as well as our State Legislator guests. Price for the box lunch will be $10.00.
Other activities available to the participants include going to either House or Senate committee hearings (especially if the hearing concerns legislation important to Kansas Seniors), attending either the House or Senate Session in the visitor’s gallery, or even taking a tour of the Capitol itself. You may want to testify at a committee hearing if that topic is in your expertise, and you have made arrangements with the committee chairman to do so.
The goal for Older Kansan’s Day is to let our State Legislators know what topics are important to Kansas Seniors, their Caregivers, and those who support those issues. It is also important to let the Legislators know that we are watching what they do, and that WE VOTE. Hopefully the weather will cooperate, and there is a large contingent of Kansas Seniors and their supporters at the event. Call Jay Rowh, NC-FHAAA Board Chairman, at 785-738-2310 for more information and/or to reserve your spot for the event. The Solomon Valley Transportation (SVT) bus will be taking passengers from our area to the State Capitol but you are also encouraged to take your own car or ride with your friends in their car. Mark February 13th on your calendar, and make your voice heard on the important Senior Issues in Kansas.

Saturday, February 3rd, 2018—6pm

Entertainment by Bryan Cork

Bryan Cork headshot2015large

Laughter is the best medicine. Bryan has been doing his special form of healing for over twenty years now. This strange and unusual journey started for Bryan as an actor. For a dozen years he did appearances as the Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel Comics. But alas, the demands of wearing spandex eventually took its toll. (You try wearing spandex when you are 35 and see how you look.) So his career took a new direction. A comedy door opened up, and Bryan crashed through it like he was running from the police.

Now he tours the country sharing his unique brand of clean humor and clever stories about deer hunting, tech support, and how Pictionary can ruin Thanksgiving. He will leave you, and your audience roaring with laughter. And Bryan claims scientific research has shown that his show will lower your cholesterol, whiten your teeth, and make your children anxious to help with chores around the house.

Tickets are available.  Call the Chamber Office at 785-738-2717 or email beloitchamber@nckcn.com to reserve yours today!

NCK Tech

NCK Tech Recognized as #6 Community College in America

NCK Tech was recently named one of the nation’s top 50 community colleges by Thebestschools.org. The college received this honor because of their high scores on the following outcomes: sustained achievement, learning, deployment, equitability, and cost-to-value. North Central Kansas Technical College is adding this award to many others they have received over the last few months. The Aspen Institute recognized NCK Tech as one of 150 best colleges in the US. In addition to this award, they were named #1 in the nation in job placement by Zippia.com, a #3 in the nation ranking in graduation rates by The Chronicle of Higher Education, and a NICHE.com 10th best community college in America award.

According to Thebestschools.org website, “North Central has an outstanding reputation for graduate placement, averaging over 90% annually. NCK Tech graduate salaries are consistently comparable to graduates of 2- and 4-year institutions.”

President of the college, Eric Burks, explains how NCK Tech continues to rise to the top of so many national rankings. “Simply put, we have wonderful and dedicated employees who help our students become successful graduates! It’s an honor for the college and gratifying for our staff to receive all of this recognition. It is also a point of pride for our students, and for the communities we serve, to know their college is performing so well on the national level. Personally, I’m most pleased that all of the rankings have been based on student success metrics, because that is why we are here…to help students succeed. We also know, while we’re thrilled with what we’ve accomplished, there’s more work to do and we intend to get better.”

NCK Tech is a fully accredited 2-year technical college with campuses in Beloit and Hays, KS. They tout 25 different programs to choose from and most programs are either 9 or 18 months in duration. The college also offers credits that transfer to 4-year institutions for students who are looking to further their education.

OLDER KANSAN’S DAY IN TOPEKA SET FOR FEBRUARY 13

On Tuesday, February 13, 2018, North Central-Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging (based in Manhattan) will be hosting their annual “Older Kansan’s Day at the State Capitol”.  This is an invitation to you, your friends, and anyone else interested in Senior Issues, to meet at the State Capitol on that day, and express your opinion on issues important to you, and to Kansas Seniors all across the state.

The day will begin when you meet with NC-FHAAA members in the State Capitol sometime between 8:00 and 9:00 AM.  Appointments with your State Legislators can be scheduled in the morning, usually in groups of 3-5 people.  They will also provide each person with “talking points” on the positions of the Kansas Association of Area Agencies on Aging and Disabilities (K4Ad), as well as vital statistics on the value of senior programs in the State of Kansas.  These are merely starting points that you can use when meeting the State Legislators, but you are not restricted to these points.  Any issue that concerns you is certainly open for discussion, and you are welcome to state your position on any of those concerns.  We especially want to focus on issues important to seniors that day, but you are not restricted to just those issues.

Each appointment with the State Legislator will be for approximately 15-20 minutes, at which time another group will be scheduled to meet with that legislator.  Since the Kansas House of Representatives convenes daily at 11:00 AM, the appointments with House members will only last until about 10:45.  Appointments with members of the Kansas Senate can continue, as the Senate does not convene until after lunch (around 1:30 PM).

At lunch, attendees will meet on the second floor of the State Capitol, where a box lunch will be served to all those participating in the event, as well as our State Legislator guests.  Price for the box lunch will be $10.00.

Other activities available to the participants include going to either House or Senate committee hearings (especially if the hearing concerns legislation important to Kansas Seniors), attending either the House or Senate Session in the visitor’s gallery, or even taking a tour of the Capitol itself.  You may want to testify at a committee hearing if that topic is in your expertise, and you have made arrangements with the committee chairman to do so.

The goal for Older Kansan’s Day is to let our State Legislators know what topics are important to Kansas Seniors, their Caregivers, and those who support those issues.  It is also important to let the Legislators know that we are watching what they do, and that WE VOTE.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate, and there is a large contingent of Kansas Seniors and their supporters at the event.  Call Jay Rowh, NC-FHAAA Board Chairman, at 785-738-2310 for more information and/or to reserve your spot for the event.  The Solomon Valley Transportation (SVT) bus will be taking passengers from our area to the State Capitol but you are also encouraged to take your own car or ride with your friends in their car.    Mark February 13th on your calendar, and make your voice heard on the important Senior Issues in Kansas.

Rinehart R100 Archery Shoot

The Rinehart R100 3D archery shoot will be May 19 and 20, 2018. The event will be hosted by North Central Kansas Shooting Sports archery club the “Waconda Lake Archers”. Over 100 life size animal targets will be set up on trails along the wooded creeks and rolling hills at Ringneck Ranch in southwest Mitchell county. This year’s course will offer an African safari range and a North American range. During past shoots in Kansas this event has attracted over 300 participants. People travel hundreds of miles to participate in this archery competition and the “just for fun” categories. Many people will shoot the 100 targets over the two-day period. If attendees plan to shoot all 100 in one day, they’ll need to arrive early, so they don’t miss any of the special events going on in the afternoons. Crossbows are allowed! The event is family friendly and non-shooters are welcome to walk along the course. If visitors intend to bring a pet be sure to bring a leash as there will be lots of people on the trails. The shoot has marked yardages but participants are welcome to bring rangefinders and binoculars. The R100 starts at 7:30am. Find more details on the event schedule and register online at www.R100.org. If attendees are interested in lodging, primitive camping, and RV camping on site call the Ringneck Ranch office at 785-373-4835. Overnight accommodations, RV parking, and restaurants can also be found at nearby locations in Beloit, Glen Elder, Cawker City, Downs, Osborne, and Lincoln. The Waconda Lake Archery club will be giving away a Kansas state park annual vehicle permit to two lucky people. To be entered into the drawing you must be two of the first 100 people to register for the event online. Winners will be announced once registration reaches 100.

For more than 15 years the R100 Archery Shoot, hosted by Rinehart Targets, has provided thousands of passionate archers with an event that caters to participants of all ages and skill levels. R100 is comprised of 20 tournaments across 20 different states that host a family oriented event with over 9,000 attendees per year. The R100 can be found at some of the nations finest archery clubs and continues to introduce youthful shooters to the great sport of archery season after season.

Chamber Annual Banquet

ChamberBanquetFOOTBALL

The Chamber Annual Banquet is set for February 3rd at Down Under!
Entertainment for the evening will be……Bryan Cork!

Laughter is the best medicine. Bryan has been doing his special form of healing for over twenty years now. This strange and unusual journey started for Bryan as an actor. For a dozen years he did appearances as the Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel Comics. But alas, the demands of wearing spandex eventually took its toll. (You try wearing spandex when you are 35 and see how you look.) So his career took a new direction. A comedy door opened up, and Bryan crashed through it like he was running from the police.

Now he tours the country sharing his unique brand of clean humor and clever stories about deer hunting, tech support, and how Pictionary can ruin Thanksgiving. He will leave you, and your audience roaring with laughter. And Bryan claims scientific research has shown that his show will lower your cholesterol, whiten your teeth, and make your children anxious to help with chores around the house.

Tickets and table sponsorships are available. Call the Chamber Office at 785-738-2717 or email beloitchamber@nckcn.com to reserve yours today!

Strategic Doing Workshop

The Board of Directors of the Solomon Valley Community Foundation are pleased to hear about multiple Strategic Doing projects being worked on across the entire county.  What an exciting time for our communities!

We have had several groups reach out to gain more understanding of the Strategic Doing process.  We have decided to hold an optional workshop to outline how the Strategic Doing process works and how it can help with our projects.  This workshop is a time to ask questions, work through your projects, and meet as a group.   We hope to provide some additional understanding from others who are familiar with Strategic Doing.

We will hold the workshop on: Wednesday, January 17th at 7pm at the North Central Regional Planning Commission – 109 North Mill, Beloit

Please note this is an optional workshop and not required for your project team.  We know there are many projects moving forward on their own, but if you are in the need of some assistance or guidance this workshop is designed to help.

Please RSVP your attendance to Heather Hartman at 738-3000.  Feel free to contact Heather with additional thoughts, questions or concerns.

The Chamber Annual Banquet is set for February 3rd at Down Under!  The theme this year will be “Are You Ready for Some Football!”  Invitations will be coming soon!

Entertainment for the evening will be……Bryan Cork!

Bryan Cork headshot2015large.jpg

Laughter is the best medicine. Bryan has been doing his special form of healing for over twenty years now. This strange and unusual journey started for Bryan as an actor. For a dozen years he did appearances as the Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel Comics. But alas, the demands of wearing spandex eventually took it’s toll. (You try wearing spandex when you are 35 and see how you look.) So his career took a new direction. A comedy door opened up, and Bryan crashed through it like he was running from the police.

Now he tours the country sharing his unique brand of clean humor and clever stories about deer hunting, tech support, and how Pictionary can ruin Thanksgiving. He will leave you, and your audience roaring with laughter. And Bryan claims scientific research has shown that his show will lower your cholesterol, whiten your teeth, and make your children anxious to help with chores around the house.

Table sponsorships are available.  Call the Chamber Office at 785-738-2717 or email beloitchamber@nckcn.com to reserve yours today!

Strategic Doing Workshop

The Board of Directors of the Solomon Valley Community Foundation are pleased to hear about multiple Strategic Doing projects being worked on across the entire county.  What an exciting time for our communities!

We have had several groups reach out to gain more understanding of the Strategic Doing process.  We have decided to hold an optional workshop to outline how the Strategic Doing process works and how it can help with our projects.  This workshop is a time to ask questions, work through your projects, and meet as a group.   We hope to provide some additional understanding from others who are familiar with Strategic Doing.

We will hold the workshop on: Wednesday, January 17th at 7pm at the North Central Regional Planning Commission – 109 North Mill, Beloit

Please note this is an optional workshop and not required for your project team.  We know there are many projects moving forward on their own, but if you are in the need of some assistance or guidance this workshop is designed to help.

Please RSVP your attendance to Heather Hartman at 738-3000.  Feel free to contact Heather with additional thoughts, questions or concerns.
