JOHN DAY - There's still time to sign up for a free seminar on community leadership that will be held on two weekends - Feb. 6-7 and March 6-7.

The location of the workshop will be at the Grant County Health Department - not the Mt. Vernon Community Center, as previously announced.

The Effective Organization program is offered through The Ford Foundation and Rural Development Initiatives, Inc. (RDI).

The training is beneficial for directors, board members, and staff and volunteers who work with nonprofits and service organizations; it also has proven helpful to local government, service districts and institutions such as schools and clinics.

Participants will also have a chance to network with leaders of other organizations in their community.

Registration is urged in January. There is no cost to attend.

For more information and registration materials, contact Alicia Flory at The Ford Family Foundation, 541-957-5574 or by e-mail, (
