Quality of Life Day
Southwest Nebraska Leadership Institute class members had a Quality of Life Day for their final meeting. Starting with a trip to McCook Chamber of Commerce and learned about all the functions of the chamber from Jamie Mockry, they next discussed community involvement with McCook Economic Development Corp. interim director, Andrew Ambriz. The next stop was the YMCA, where Mike Gonzales, executive director, led a†tour of the facility and discussed the history and changes at the facility through the years. Later the class visited the Evangelical Free Church, and finally, they took a tour of Red Willow Dam facilitated by the Bureau of Reclamation. The day was not complete without an archery lesson and símores. SWNLI had their final banquet on Wednesday evening at Community Hospital.
