Our September gathering of the Prairie Idea Exchange tested an assumption: By engaging with our young people today, we are more likely to keep them in, or bring them back to, our towns later as active members of the community.
We want your voice included in this conversation as well: Look for the invitation at the end of the articles or go to www.pie4.us to share your stories and ideas. We’ll reshare your “fruitful” ideas (since we’re talking about PIE) in the January/February 2016 issue of Dakotafire.
Click on one of the following links and enjoy a slice of PIE!
