Community Leadership – COL
communities that are up to taking on a positive, responsible and leadership role in having our communities work for everyone. This effort is a continuation of “Conversation on Leadership” workship that followed the “Positively Powerful Women Awards Luncheon” this past May. Our next workshop is Dec. 12th at ASU Mercado Phoenix
In looking at the positive things happening in the world, we came across this article in the New York Times about the people of Saranac Lake, New York, a small recreational community with about five thousand residents who went about starting their own department store after Ames Department Store chain closed in a bankruptcy process.
“take control of our future and help our community,”
What stood out for us about this story was that they did not take the easiest way out or seek a short term solution, rather what they are attempting to do is something difficult and when they succeed, it just may be the best thing they ever that could have happened to this small town.
