BY JULIE BEZENEK• DAILY NEWS MEDIA julieb@wahpetondailynews.com West Central Initiative (WCI) held two gatherings Wednesday, Nov. 7 in Breckenridge, Minnesota, for the community to get to know them a little bit bet- ter. "This really is quite a remarkable place to live," said President and CEO Anna Wasescha. "We know that, and we want to tell other people." West Central Initiative is a regional community foundation. The presentations were held to explain who they are, what are they all about, where they serve, when and how can they help, and why resi- dents haven't heard about WCI already. "Pop-up" office hours were held earlier that day at the Breckenridge Public Library with WCI staff members Sheri Booms Holm, director of Commu- nications, and Rebecca Petersen, director of Devel- opment. They provided information and answered questions to a steady stream of people. Steve Kent, a member of the WCI board represent- ing Wilkin County, Minnesota, hosted an evening gathering at the Wilkin Drink & Eatery. The room was full of community residents, local government officials and representatives of area businesses and non-profits. In addition to Kent, speakers from WCI included Wasescha; Jane Vangsness Frisch, a board member representing Traverse County, Minnesota; David Nelson and Rick Steckler, past board members rep- resenting Wilkin County; Kristi Maas of Southern Valley Early Childhood Initiative; and Brecken- ridge Education Foundation representative Scott Nicholson. Two sides West Central Initiative is a regional community foundation that invests in economic development, community development and promotes philanthro- py for regional success in west central Minnesota by providing funding, programs, and offering tech- nical assistance. When staff were asked the question as to who they were, it turned out to be a tough one for them to summarize. "It is interestingly hard to describe raising mon- ey, holding other people's money, then giving out grants, making loans along with offering programs and technical assistance in a variety of areas," Wasescha replied. "But there are two sides. The other is that we are a regional development orga- nization, recognized by the federal government for creating a comprehensive economic development strategy for this entire region." Still here — where? WCI was founded as a means to help out during the agricultural depression of the 1980s.
