My name is Kevin Mason, and I saw your presentation at Preserve Iowa last week.  As a young person in a small Iowa community, I have been asked to wear many hats.  It seems as if the list of things to be done never ceases to multiply, and it can be easy to lose focus on what my why is for doing the things that I do.  Your presentation last week was an uplifting spark that helped to remind me of why I passionately pursue the projects I do in Forest City.  Thank you for your infectious spirit and willingness to share your passion!  Have a great week!

 

“I appreciated the very relaxed feel to the webinar.  No monotone drone that gets tuned out off and on throughout a session… I watched it twice as matter of fact.”     James Leonard, Town of Buffalo, Oklahoma 

 

“For all of us, it opened our eyes as to what we can do on a smaller scale,” Rosalie Meyers, Roscommon County Economic Development Corporation Coordinator, Michigan.
