Newsletter Feature from Chuck - April 18, 2017

Good day. We hope you had a peaceful weekend and were able to enjoy it with loved ones and friends. This edition of our newsletter highlights business in general, young women in Wyandotte County in particular, and people who make a difference.

What a difference a couple of weeks make! We then highlighted debris being flung along Minnesota. Happy to announce that, due to your efforts and those of the KCKPD, it has not occurred again. Thank you. Thank you for caring about Downtown, working to improve it, and making a difference. Downtown is full of great, hard-working folks who care about their family, business or organization, and their environment. You have made it through some very tough times and now are positioned to enjoy the fruit of your labor. We celebrate with you! We celebrate you.

Teresa Mata & Dave RenoWhile debris made the news last time, this time we highlight a touch of beauty in Downtown. The Self-Supported Municipal Improvement District, SSMID, purchased flowers for planters along Minnesota Ave. They were planted last Friday. Pictured are Teresa Mata of McAnany, Van Cleave & Phillips, P.A. and our own Dave Reno, also of BHC RHODES. The flowers were purchased with a grant from Livable Neighborhoods, a Unified Government division of the Neighborhood Resource Center.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who were able to participate including those from WYEDC, Greg Kindle, Danica Rome, and Cari Lynn; United Way, Cindy Cash; Rental City, Lynn Kuluva; Simmons Security, Abraham Santana; retiree and DTSKCK Board member Jim Schraeder; Ashley Adorante, University of Kansas Cancer Center; Savanna Gaumer, Washburn University Student and University of Kansas Cancer Center Intern; inSITE Planning principal Daniel Serda; and DTSKCK’s Dave Reno.

People making a difference! Another great reason to be Downtown. Come make a difference! Come celebrate with us. Come see why we call Downtown KCK everyone’s Downtown!
