Community Highlight!
Kiosk in Perry KS
Via Perry PRIDE's 2nd Quarterly Report: We are so excited to have received the honor to have the Smithsonian "Hometown Teams" display in our town. We get to put our own display of sports teams and their contribution to the town of Perry. We have a great history of school and community teams, and we have some great information about our women`s teams - which started back in the 1920s!!!! It will be in our historic gym at the now Highland Community college building. We also are proud of our Eagle Scout, Drew Scrimsher, who in conjunction with Perry Pride and Kentucky Township, built an information kiosk/sign for us to use to promote community events.” 
Looking for funding for your projects? Some communities are considering Kanstarter! Wilson is raising money for their Opera House, and Burdett PRIDE is raising funds for their miniature golf course! Minimum donations start at $1 - and as we all know, every dollar counts! Have a Kanstarter page? Let us know and we will put it on our Facebook and more!

Building Better Communities
The Kansas PRIDE Program is a partnership of K-State Research and Extension, the Kansas Department of Commerce, and Kansas PRIDE, Inc.
Kansas PRIDE is dedicated to serving communities across the state to encourage and assist local government and volunteers in making their community a better place to live and work.
Through the PRIDE program, local communities identify what they would like to preserve, create, or improve for their future. Then, working with the resources of K-State Research & Extension and the Kansas Department of Commerce, community volunteers pull together to create their ideal community future.
