Your Help is Wanted – and Needed!

Every few years we try to assess what’s important in our communities so we can make sure we’re providing the programs and services that people need.

We need your input – and that of your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and casual acquaintances!

Please take 10-15 minutes to answer the questions on the survey you will see when you click on this link .  Then direct everyone you know to this page so they can do the same.

Next spring or summer we will share what we have learned from this information gathering.  Thanks in advance for your help in making sure we have as many perspectives as possible!
