the residents of Goff formed a Senior Citizens Group to find ways to
improve the community of Goff. Soon after it's formation, the Senior
Citizens Group found out about and decided to affiliate themselves with
the Kansas PRIDE Program. This has been a good match. The Kansas
PRIDE Program has been a conduit and structure that has helped us
maximize our effectiveness in our community.
Since it was formed, Goff Pride has found many ways to have a positive
impact on the Goff community. When those ongoing projects are
successful, Goff Pride has kept those effective projects going.
Included in those ongoing projects are: After School Tutoring;
Community Events Sign; Library; Food Pantry; and the Exercise Center.
The STAR Award Program has spurred us to develop many award winning
projects for our community. In our short history we have received many
Kansas PRIDE Star Awards. Included in our Award projects are: A fitness
center; a meeting room in the fire station; the Goff Community Center;
Skeezix Farm Toy Museum; and the Goff Library.
So what could Goff Pride do in 2010 to keep up their tradition of
coordinating projects that have a positive impact on the Goff
community? Building a picnic shelter in the City Park was the project
that was selected. Land was donated by an absentee land owner. Funds
were solicited from many different sources. Volunteers were lined up
with areas of expertise needed to build the shelter. The result: a
completed shelter that is a great addition to Goff.
