One community’s “can do”
April 1, 2011 by Blandin Foundation
North-central Minnesota’s Aitkin County, home to both communities, spans a portion of Minnesota’s lake country. Tourism and timber are important here, as is community collaboration.
Together, this team of leaders from all walks of community life built community leadership capacity. They learned about and from each other, building and strengthening relationships. In the coming months, they will gather again to chart courses of action that build on their individual and community assets.
Certainly one of those assets is certainly a “can-do” attitude. Aitkin’s website home page encourages readers to “Make Change Happen.” This group has taken that to heart.
