"Tea and Talk" Kansas Flint Hills Presentation

I really enjoyed the opportunity this afternoon to speak at the "Tea and Talk" group meeting in the ESU Sauder Center - an enthusiastic group of 20 or so, mostly retired faculty - on the accomplishments of the Flint Hills Tourism Coalition, Inc. as well as the economic benefits of tourism in the Kansas Flint Hills as an economic development tool.

The particular PowerPoint slide, above, as I speak to the group, is my concluding slide for this presentation - a quote from Theodore Roosevelt: "Do what you can with what you have where you are" - perfect for our rural development efforts in the Kansas Flint Hills.
