The conference highlight was
the video preview of KanStarter, an online service
designed to match community projects with those who want to help. The project is a
collaboration of the Kansas
Sampler Foundation and the Reflective Group of Baldwin
City. Marci Penner,
foundation director said, "Though it will take several months for
KanStarter to be ready to go, the potential
to make an incredible impact in rural
communities is there. Mike Bosch and his Reflective Group of "small
town geeks" have a
great passion for rural communities. Their skills matched with our network and awareness
of common issues will offer communities some exciting support."
