Promote your passion, 'discover your drive' at SWNE Activities Fair

Monday, January 21, 2019

It’s tempting to roll one’s eyes when we hear the complaint “there’s nothing to do!” in small towns.

Usually, the complainer is a teen — OK, that’s an entirely different issue — or someone who’s unfamiliar with small-town life.

With the slightest amount of effort, or with the unwillingness to say “no,” one can easily find every night filled with events involving a church, service club or business activity. But that’s only true if you are adept at making connections.

The Gazette’s pages and website are great places to keep up with what’s happening around the area, but even in this age of instant social media, it’s possible to miss connection with like-minded individuals.

That’s where the Southwest Nebraska Leadership Institute is stepping in to fill the gap.

The group plans a Southwest Nebraska Community Links Activities Fair from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28 to create just such connections.

Have a specific hobby? If you’re having trouble connecting with others who are interested in specific sports, art, music, social concerns and special interests of all types, the event is tailor-made for you.

Looking to learn something new, improve your mental or physical health or just get out of a rut? Plan to attend.

Strictly a non-commercial event, the Southwest Nebraska Community Links Activity Fair is being hosted by the Southwest Nebraska Leadership Institute Class of 2019. More information is available at swcommlinks @gmail.com or on the Southwest Community Links page on Facebook.
