Over the last month we’ve been working with some folks up on campus to figure out how we can put up an electronic bulletin board that we could share and use to publicize events on campus and around town. This isn’t a new idea but it’s definitely got some new life recently thanks to the interest from the new Provost. The City looked at electronic bulletin boards pretty closely a couple of years ago but it just didn’t get enough traction to overcome the cost issue (roughly $30,000). That’s where the Provost comes in. As the new guy in town he gets to ask the obvious question like why don’t we work together to get a community bulletin board and perhaps share the cost. That’s the kind of talk that gets our attention. Hopefully we can get this deal done but until then I’ll do my best to keep you posted on events around Kent.
This weekend in Kent:
Please join us this Friday, June 20th from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for the first-ever After Work Party at the Home Savings Plaza.
