New ways to get things done in small towns topic of second Reimagining Rural session

The second session of Reimagining Rural will feature nationally known rural experts Becky McCray and Deb Brown, who encouraged community members to try new ideas as a way to deal with the changes we see in our small towns. Also featured in this session is a story of success from a small Montana town.

"We need to be more open to new ideas," McCray said. "Iowa State University studied 99 small towns over 20 years and found that the communities that survived the best were the ones that were open to new ideas. And it makes sense. If you are open to new ideas, you can deal with new challenges."
