The Dodge City Cultural Relations Advisory Board will begin a four week education series for anyone interested in learning more about community resources. The program will identify and provide participants an awareness of the functions, responsibilities and impact that different public entities have on the community and the individual. The sessions are meant to open avenues of communication between participants and officials through discussion, dialog and information. The program goals will be to integrate participants in the community and to provide a knowledge base for civic engagement.
The sessions will be held on Tuesday evenings from March 19th through April 9th, from 6:00 – 7:30 pm. They will cover the following topics: 1) Fire and Emergency Medical Service; 2) City Government and Law enforcement; 3) Education; 4) and Dodge City History/Tourism.
Some of the benefits participants will achieve through their participation include: an awareness of the functions and responsibilities of elected officials to the community, an understanding of the different cultures in our community, and the confidence to become a more active volunteer.
An application is available at City Hall, 806 N. 2nd Ave. or United Methodis tCare Center, 1700 Ave. F. An application fee of $15.00 will cover all expenses.
