Two early October events will provide opportunities for citizens to learn how they can be involved with improving their community’s quality of life through Community Council’s study-action process. The public is encouraged to attend.

Monday, October 5, join Community Council board and committee members in the Delaney Building in Dayton between noon and 1 p.m. Lunch will be provided at no charge, but reservations are requested by September 29 to ensure adequate food is prepared. Call 509-540-6720 or email to RSVP.

The Albee Room in the Milton-Freewater Public Library will be the site for the Tuesday, October 6, gathering between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

The program will provide an overview of the 2008 community study, Enhancing the Educational Attainment of Our Region’s Children, and plans for implementing the committee’s recommendations. The next study topic will be discussed and attendees may sign up to participate. Information will also be provided about a new website of community health indicators being launched October 13.

Board and committee members will be on hand to answer questions and to solicit input for future studies.

Community Council, a nonprofit organization focused on the region between Burbank and Dayton and from the Snake River to Milton-Freewater, brings citizens together for accurate research on topics of regional interest, for discussion and unbiased analysis of that information, to formulate consensus-based recommendations to benefit their community, and to take action on those recommendations.
