Small Towns and Forward Thinking

I love inventive ideas. You probably know that about me if you've read here for any amount of time.

This is an idea that has really impressed me. Garnett, Kansas, a town of about 3,400 people, put together a weekend getaway package with a $5,000 value. That, in and of itself, is amazing. They're auctioning it off as a fundraiser for the Kansas Sampler Foundation, which works to sustain rural culture.

I'm very impressed with what they pulled together. It's incredible what this small town was able to gather - a great place to stay, catered food, live entertainment and even an aerial tour.

Check out details at Scroll down and read what they organized. If that doesn't prove the ingeunity of small towns I don't know what does.

Similar in its innovation quotient to the bloggers' tour of Hutch the city promoted, right? Get people talking about your city in what you hope will be a positive way. Richard Florida would be proud.
