Sheridan Media News has been following Sheridan College's Center for a Vital Community's initiative to address the issue of poverty in Sheridan County. This week marks the formation of multiple study circles in Story, Ranchester/Dayton and Sheridan. Interested people will meet this week to choose a group with different meeting times and places to convene on a weekly basis for five weeks. Afterward, the small independent groups will come together to share what they explored and present ideas to help Sheridan achieve greater financial equality. Amy Albrecht, director of the CVC, has big expectations.
Concerned citizens of all economic situations will choose a meeting group time and place that best suits their schedule and meet weekly to carry out guided discussions. Sign-ups for this groundbreaking community project for those living in Ranchester and Dayton are tonight at the Tongue River Valley Community Center. Story residents will meet at the Women's Club tomorrow night, and Sheridanites will meet Wednesday at the YMCA. All meetings/sign-up sessions start at 6:30 p.m. If you need more information or want to be involved but can't make it this week, call Amy at the CVC at 674-6446, ext. 4203.
