Vibrant Communities| August 24 – 28
August 27, 2015 by Blandin Foundation
Every week we have the privilege of sharing vibrant stories from rural Minnesota communities — stories of community resilience, of local leadership. Left untold, these stories would fade, like the memories of those who created them.
Fortunately, that’s not the case. All around Minnesota, our small town newspapers are capturing the stories that propel our communities forward. They are raising up community-driven solutions to some of our most pressing issues so that progress is recognized and so that other communities might learn.
Following the graduation of the Editors & Publishers class of 2015, we would like to recognize the process that these newspapers go through partner in building a healthy community. During their time in Editors & Publishers, many participating publications wrote about their role as leaders in building healthy communities. Links below.
