This coming Friday and Saturday (July 24, 25), Mr. Ray Hutchinson of Stamping Ground will have a U-Haul at the IGA parking lot. He is requesting non-perishable items to help the many families in need, in Johnson County. He has requested that monetary donations not be given but that instead, items that families can use during this crisis. He is paying for the trailer and will also deliver the items to Johnson County. (You are also welcome to make the trip, as well).

We are very blessed with six churches in the immediate Stamping Ground metropolis and several more just a few miles down the road. This is a great opportunity for an outreach from Stamping Ground to help the flood victims of Johnson County. Can you bring this to the attention of your family, friends, neighbors, and fellow church members? THANK YOU STAMPING GROUND.

For Immediate Release 

What: Community Listening and Design Session on Thursday, August 20, 2015

Where: Cafeteria of the Stamping Ground Elementary School

Time: Refreshments served at 6:00 p.m., meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.

What if everyone in Stamping Ground was invited to share their ideas about our community’s
future, and they all showed up?

The Mayor and members of the Stamping Ground City Commission want to make this dream a reality. They invite you to work with them to establish a shared vision, priorities and strategies
for the future of Stamping Ground. What makes this initiative so important is that everyone in the community is invited to get involved.

What’s a Listening and Design Session?

Listening and Design Sessions give local residents an opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns about the future of the community. Additionally, citizens can visualize their ideas with
maps, pictures and markers, showing one another their ideas for the future of Stamping Ground. The session gives the citizens of Stamping Ground a voice on what they want for their families,
businesses and future.

During the Listening and Design Session, the leadership of the community intentionally becomes the audience. They put aside expectations about what they think they should hear and instead focus on what citizens are actually saying. As a result, community leaders will have an opportunity to gain valuable information they might not hear in any other context. Listening and Design Sessions are convened for many reasons, particularly to hear from citizens

 about their ideas, suggestions, and concerns

 as they share their ideas;

 as they voice their opinions and discuss the possibilities;

 as they help choose priorities; and then

 take action on those ideas and priorities for the betterment of the community’s future.

This initiative is funded by the city of Stamping Ground. It is being led by professional development advisors from the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC). The listening session will be
collaborative and transparent.
