Ideas for growth

Members of the Menno Area Development Corporation met last week to discuss and brainstorm ideas for attracting new residents to the community. Various ideas for marketing the community to young families who may be interested in leaving urban areas for a more rural lifestyle were discussed, including the best way to market the community to those who may not be familiar with it. The program was  was part of a series of Internet seminars presented by hosted by the Heartland Center for Leadership Development and the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship and hosted by  the Southeast Enterprise Facilitation Project.
