Earlier this year the Golden Belt Community Foundation established the Barton County Pool Grant and Endowment Funds (Funds) as a way to provide long-term support to youth swim programs in Barton County, as well as to help support the indoor pool at Barton Community College. Thanks to community members helping to build the Funds, area youth will benefit from the first grant.
Barton County 4-H was host to Regional 4-H Day at Great Bend High School on March 9th. Regional 4-H Day participants are the top presentations selected at their local county 4-H Day. The counties that are in our region are Ellsworth, Pawnee, Rice, Russell, Stafford and of course, Barton.
Mark your calendars for a cultural experience you will not want to miss. Join me and my friends from the Barton County Academy as they share "South of the Border Traditions." The program is set for noon on Thursday, March 29th at the Great Bend Recreation Center, Burnside room, located at 12th and Stone.
