FREDCO Tours New Office Location

Surrounded by the smell of new carpet and fresh paint, members of the FREDCO Board toured their future base of operations on April 16th as part of their monthly meeting. The organization will have an office located in the front portion of the Fremont County Museum which faces the courthouse. The remodeling of the office, meeting room and reception area is Phase I of the Rodeo Museum development. Reverend Roger Kissel, who is a member of both the Rodeo Museum and FREDCO Boards, explained that Phase II would not start until the State is able to release more Vision Iowa funds. "You will know when that day comes though! Because the old Brownfield Auto building will be demolished to make room for the new Exhibition Hall."

Sharon Yahnke, Executive Director of the Faith in Action Volunteers, Inc. shared the types of activities that her volunteers had been helping with in sorting the records and photos that keep arriving as people statewide contribute to Rodeo memorabilia. Yahnke also provides direction and supervision for teens who are court ordered to serve community service hours. She has enjoyed bringing the youth in to help with the moving and organization project.

Linda Meyers of the Fulfilling Iowa's Need for Dentists (FIND) addressed the board and asked for their formal support for the Fremont County Taskforce to recruit a dentist who is willing to allocate 35% of their patient load to the underserved (elderly, Medicaid, hawk-I, uninsured and nursing home residents). The taskforce will work together with FIND to obtain grant funds and Iowa Loan Repayment assistance to a prospective dentist. The board voted to support this project and attend recruitment meetings.

The next FREDCO meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 21, 6:30 a.m. at the Community Room in Sidney. All FREDCO meetings are open to the public.
