Manila folders for the new Economic

Development and

Community Services director

August 1 the new city Economic Development and Community Services director will begin working. Randy Bombardier (pronounced bom-bar-dee-ay) comes to Winslow from Idaho where he has worked with the kinds of programs we also want to implement.

Winslow has many programs already beginning or in place and this is the time to let Mr. Bombardier know about them. If each organization writes a one-page letter to let him know who you are and what your major goals are he will get a great introduction to the variety and vigor of the development of economic and community services in Winslow.

A partial list of those who have programs and proposals that he should know about includes: the Historic Preservation Commission and Old Trails Museum, Focus Future and the Senior Living Cluster, Friends of the Library and the Downtown Redevelopment Committee, the Jaycees, Rotary, the Family Resource Center, Winslow Guidance Associates, the Community Counseling Center, La Familia, the People Who Care Organization, Winslow Alliance, the Council on Aging and the Senior Center.

Along with the letter, copies of the top sheets or abstracts of grants given or applied for and of key proposals can be put in the folder. This way the new director can tell at a glance that these are not simply ideas, but working programs. Put the letter and data in the manila folder, label the outside with your program's name and either take it to his office or give it to the president of the Chamber of Commerce board of directors George Stegmeir. George will make an appointment and take a stack of folders with him to greet the new director.

We have a lot of things happening here. The new Director of Economic Development and Community Services can be a big help and the more he knows the better that help can be. Let's get together and greet him with lots of information and invitations to come see each of our groups.
