WPCO Feels Strategic Planning Meeting Will Improve Area
With the goal of improving the entire area, the Wolf Point Community Organization will hold strategic planning meetings on Sept. 13-14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Silverwolf Casino.
WPCO chair Roxanne Gourneau reports that Walter White Tail Feather will serve as facilitator for the discussions.
â€śHe has been trained for years,â€ť Gourneau noted. â€śHe has knowledge of our social and economic stresses.â€ť
Goals include building a solid foundation for undertaking social and economic challenges.
â€śWe need to have a snapshot of our own circumstances,â€ť Gourneau said. â€śWe recognize our social and economic stressers, but we also recognize our untapped potential.â€ť
She encourages enrolled members to make sure they become informed by attending at least some of the meetings and sharing goals.
â€śThe community is really membership run,â€ť Gourneau said. â€śWeâ€™re just vessels to accomplish it.â€ť
She notes that the area imports just about everything including food, entertainment and services.
â€śThereâ€™s infinite opportunity here. Our goal is to position ourselves to help members and our community,â€ť Gourneau said.
She explained that WPCO needs to work together with other organizations such as the Wolf Point Chamber of Commerce, cities and counties to improve the area.
