Waconda Lake Fireworks
The Waconda Lake Fireworks Association has completed arrangements for a spectacular fireworks display at dusk (approximately 9:30 p.m.) on Saturday, July 2, 2016. This fireworks display will be enjoyed by many area residents, but it cannot be continued without donations as the association is an all-volunteer, non-profit association. The fundraising goal for this year’s fireworks display is $9,000. This includes fees for the professional pyrotechnics of Rainbow Fireworks, insurance, permit fees, and advertising.
Donations are being collected on gofundme.com, at S&S Drug, Gray Drug and Fountain, and Corner Drug in Downs. If you are interested in making a donation they can be dropped off at either of these locations or mailed to Waconda Lake Fireworks Association 605 N. Logan Beloit, KS 67420.

2016-2017 Class of Leadership Mitchell County Announced
The Leadership Mitchell County (LMC) program, a unique leadership development initiative that draws upon the resources of the Kansas Leadership Center (KLC) in Wichita, announced today the 17 community members to participate in the program’s 17th class.
These diverse leaders were chosen because of their desire and capacity to take their leadership strengths to a higher level in order to help serve north central Kansas. The nine-month program begins in August with graduation taking place in April.
Over the course of several months, participants will travel to various businesses and locations within Mitchell, Osborne, Lincoln, and Ellsworth counties as well as a trip to Kansas State University and the Kansas State Capitol to learn from business leaders, LMC alumni and leading academics. They will study and put into practice KLC competencies, develop a network of peers, and exchange ideas with mentors and others who can help them make an impact in their communities. Sessions are facilitated by LMC Board Members, alumni and area supporters. The LMC Board includes: President, Mallory Wittstruck of Farmway Co-op, Inc.; Vice President, Jennifer Cooper of Central National Bank; Secretary, Teri Pollet of Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems; Treasurer, Brandan Pounds of Farmway Credit Union; Curt Frasier of Fraiser, Johnson and Martin LLC; Deb Beam of Mitchell County Hospital Health Systems; Danielle Jeardoe of Waconda Trader; Jason Chancellor of Farm Bureau Financial Services; Mark Palen of AGCO; Kelly Schmitt of Wall to Wall Carpet & Interior; Eric Hilt of AgMark LLC; Justin Rexroat of AGCO; Scott Hartman of Van Keppel; and Susan Flinn of Guaranty State Bank.
Each LMC session will focus on a specific core component of leadership including: Manage Self, Diagnose Situation, Intervene Skillfully, and Energize Others. In addition to interactive LMC alumni-led sessions, participants will hone their personal leadership development through work with business leaders and mentors. Small group activity is another core part of the programming with each class selecting, developing and executing a project for the benefit of the Mitchell County community through the application of the skills they learn through the program.
Class 17 Participants
Class 17 was selected based on their leadership growth potential and the strength of their personal leadership projects aimed at improving the civic or social good by addressing a problem or need in the community, profession or organization. Class 17 joins the alumni network of 239 individuals. They include individuals representing an array of companies and industries, coming from a variety of sectors including private, public, non-profit, and academia.
