George Gotto presents certificates to speakers Monette Sutphin and Kris Stokke
George Gotto, who serves on the Board of Big Timbers Community Alliance brought Kris Stokke and Monette Sutphin to share current status on BCTA as well as demonstrate the community dashboard being completed as part of a grant. Rotarians learned of the critical need to have some type of alliance or group coordinating, not controlling, all aspects of community well-being - which means health, education, civic engagement, economic development, housing, and social & recreational, and other dimensions of what makes a community thrive and succeed. As grant funding for BCTA ends, it's going to be important for leaders and groups to come together to determine how to sustain the work and increase the connected-ness in our wonderful community. Craig Loveless and Lanie Mireles also serve on the BCTA Board, which will be working to engage others in this effort. Rotarians were very supportive and want to help.
