This is the audio from our monthly radio show: Focus on Stafford County. This show aired at 11:30 AM CT on Thursday, May 26, 2022. Kathleen talked about St. John’s upcoming Jubilee Celebration May 27-28. She highlighted events happening in the City of Stafford throughout the Summer (Munchie Mondays, Free Movie Wednesdays, and First Fridays). Kathleen also gave updates on childcare, housing, and the port.

The City of St, John has agreed to contribute $65,000 to the Child Care Committee to bring in a modular classroom building that would allow for two daycares to operate out of it. This is enough to secure the building, but more is needed to carry out the project.

Stafford County Economic Development is honored to receive a $10,000 grant from the Kansas Grantmakers in Health (KGIH). This gift is in memory of KGIH’s longtime colleague and friend Steve Coen, former CEO of Kansas Heath Foundation, for his tremendous impact in helping to address come of the most pressing health challenges facing our state.
