What’s Brewing? a weekly event that informs and educates the community about issues affecting Crook County, begins its second year on Wednesday, September 28. Opening speaker will be Dr. Duane Yecha, new superintendent of Crook County School District, who will present his vision and goals for Crook County public school students.
What’s Brewing? is a program of the Crook County Foundation designed to provide a neutral forum free to the public to learn about and discuss matters of importance to residents of Crook County. It meets weekly every Wednesday morning from 7:00 to 8:00 am at Meadow Lakes Restaurant in Prineville. Topics are often provocative with various points of view that challenge people to think and share ideas.
In addition to Dr. Yecha, fall programs and speakers include: State Attorney General John Kroger, OSU economist Bill Sorte who will propose that more government might actually help with the economic development of rural Oregon, and Prineville City Manager Steve Forrester who will present new ideas and directions for the local airport. Other upcoming topics will be the Prineville caldera, deep sea diving around the world, and the trials and rewards of adopting a child from a Ugandan orphanage.
The Crook County Foundation was established in 1998 to support education, leadership, community development and the arts in Crook County. What’s Brewing? was initiated in 2010 with a first year attendance of 1,070 over 33 weeks. For more information contact Kristi Steber by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 541-447-6909.
