Getting involved

TO THE EDITOR: This is a community we can be proud of. No matter what comes our way, we seem to find the means to work effectively together to make it a better place in which to live.

Our business, educational and civic leaders work together to be proactive in order to enhance our way of life.

Due to community vision and leadership, we have another grassroots groundswell of positive activity brewing, and this is far reaching and all inclusive.

Vision2Action has sprung to life and encompasses every aspect of our community. It has become a call to arms for all of us to join in, take responsibility and make a difference for the future of our community.

Vision2Action has already put before us four forums that have showcased arts and culture, recreation, transportation and education. All of these initiatives are in need of volunteer participation. We all have the opportunity to step up and accept that it is our responsibility to do what we can in order to make our community the best it can be.

It really does “take a village” to educate our children and create an environment in which we all can flourish.

If you were unable to attend any or all of the four forums in 2012, there will be opportunities to catch up in 2013. In January, Vision2Action will present its report card of how progress is going. As this movement of community engagement moves forward, there will be more opportunities to get involved. If we don’t participate, others will be making the decisions for us.

As we have often heard during the past year, “if the people lead, the leaders will follow.”

To find how you can get involved and be an important participant in the future of Clinton County, please check out ncvision2action.org.
