As we ring in the New Year, I am excited about what 2014 has in store for Southwest Initiative Foundation and our entire southwest Minnesota community! Our work to build connections and grow and promote people, businesses, entrepreneurs and communities in our rural region will continue at full speed.
I’m also looking forward to continued work with our outstanding volunteer Board of Directors. We recently started a series of interviews with our board on our weekly Linder Farm Network shows. Each Friday between 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m. you can tune into your local LFN affiliate station and hear what inspires our board about Southwest Initiative Foundation and our region.
Vice Chair Bob Thurston was today’s featured board member. He’s also chair of our investment committee and chair of our farmland retention committee, which provides leadership specifically to our Keep It Growing farmland giving program. Listen to Bob’s interview:
