On June 30 from 6 to 9 p.m., two workshops – “Keeping the Community Informed” and “Organizational Development Overview” – will be offered to the Clarion community as part of the Blueprint Communities initiative.
The first session will provide tips on how all within the community can help spread the word about this initiative, which is designed to revitalize Main Street, Clarion. The second workshop will address how community members should organize themselves in preparation for the Blueprint Communities strategy.
The workshops, which will be conducted by Pennsylvania Downtown Center field outreach specialists Rick Viglione and Stefan Klosowski, will be held in rooms 250-252 of the Gemmell Student Complex, Clarion University. Refreshments will be provided.
This training is part of the Blueprint Communities initiative, which – over the next several years – will engage local residents and businesses in developing a clear vision and strategic plan for change in Clarion; work to develop stronger local leadership; and attract investments to build a healthier, sustainable community.
