Branching Out: OPEN-Newton keeps building up
So, as I noted last week, the first 10 years of OPEN-Newton, of which I am a board member, were anything but dull. And, with 10 years under its belt, the organization really got rolling in the 21st century.
For instance, in early 2000, OPEN-Newton supported the purchase of blankets for the nursery at the Smila Regional Hospital. And, in response to that, as well as projects like OPEN Cares, the Ukrainian Orthodox choir Blahovist performed in Newton with members of the Ukrainian communities in Minneapolis and Chicago visiting, as well.
Later that year, Marvin Campbell traveled back to the Ukraine — one of many trips he’s made over the years — in support of the Iowa-Ukraine Junior Duck Stamp design competition. He brought back a number of Ukrainian submissions, all of which were displayed at the Neal Smith Wildlife Prairie Learning Center, as well as the Iowa State Fair.
