The Beloit Tree Board and the City of Beloit will be hosting “Celebrating 41 years of TCUSA and Kansas Community Forestry” on Thursday, March 23rd at the First Christian Church. The City of Beloit has been recognized as a Tree City for 40 years.
One of the featured keynote speakers will be Beloit’s native son, Fred Deneke, along with his brother Stan. Fred is considered one of the early founders of Community Forestry and the TCUSA program.
Tree City USA program has been greening up cities and towns across America since 1976. It is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees.
More than 3,400 communities have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA. The have achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standard of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.

GLEN ELDER SENIOR CENTER TO HOST FIRST COMPUTER/SMARTPHONE WORKSHOP
The Glen Elder Senior Center will be hosting a Computer/Smartphone Workshop for the first time ever. The Workshop will take place the week of March 27 – 31 from 9:30 until 11:00 each day. Serving as moderators will be students from the North Central Kansas Technical College, under the tutelage of Mr. Robert McCreight, Advanced Computer Technology Instructor at NCK-Tech. The Glen Elder Senior Center is now able to host such events due to being awarded a grant from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation of Logan, Kansas. The grant covered the Wifi installation by Cunningham Telephone and Cable of Glen Elder, as well as additional equipment in the form of computers provided by Mr. Duff Watson of Holy Family Elementary School of Hays. A special “Thank You” goes to Mr. Tyler Brummer of Cunningham Telephone and Cable for installing the equipment.
The NCK-Tech students will be available to answer your questions concerning the use of your electronic equipment. You are invited to bring your personal laptops, iPads, and Smartphones, or use the equipment available at the Center. While there will be no formal presentation each day, the students will just move around the room, answering questions from the individual workshop participants. Whether you are a total beginner in using electronic devices, or a more advanced user, this workshop will meet your needs. Participants can come and go throughout the morning, or stay for the entire time. Likewise, participants can choose to be there for just one day, all five days, or any number of days in between. You can get your questions answered one day, go home that night to practice what you learned, then come back another day for follow-up questions, or move on to another topic. YOU choose the questions which meet YOUR needs.
There is NO COST for this valuable information and experience, and the event is open to area residents of all ages. The event is sponsored by the Glen Elder Senior Center, along with the Mitchell County Council on Aging. Similar events have been held at the Beloit Senior Center in the past, but this is the first time such an event has been held in the Glen Elder Senior Center. The Beloit Center will also be hosting this workshop, featuring students from Beloit High School, the week before Glen Elder. The Beloit event will take place on Wednesday and Friday, March 22nd and 24th, from 9:00 until 10:30 each day. You are invited to share in as many days as you desire at the two locations. Take advantage of this great opportunity to expand your knowledge with your electronic devices. Call Jay Rowh at (785)-738-0241 for more information. Advance reservations are not required. See you there!!
