Speak Up For Fort Riley

A very important date for our community and region is quickly approaching, the Speak Up for Fort Riley Army Listening Session.  On Monday, February 9th, a delegation from the Department of the Army in the Pentagon will be visiting Fort Riley and our region to evaluate possible impacts of Army reductions on Fort Riley and the region.  This forum, beginning at 3:30 pm at the Geary County Convention Center in Junction City, will involve both scheduled speakers and a community comment session.  The goal is not to stress the negative impacts of a reduced military in our region, but to stress all of the positives of having Fort Riley as an integral part of this region’s fabric, and how the fort, its troops, and employees are vital to the security of this nation as well as the quality of life in the Flint Hills.  The goal is to “pack the house” with business and community members.  This is the opportunity to show show much we care – and numbers do count.  They will be “counting noses” so please encourage your business colleagues, family, friends, and neighbors to join us in showing why our region is an amazing place to live and work.
