Historic meeting of the Lanesboro Leadership Summit


Mon, Jun 8th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Features

By Kathy Kasten

On April 30, 2015 a group of 23 key visionary representatives from organizations, boards and the community met at Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center. The mission of the meeting, organized and facilitated by Kathy Kasten of Another Time Ice Cream Parlor, was to gather and strengthen partnerships and to develop a united long-term vision for Lanesboro, as a legacy model and thriving sustainable community.

The group included leaders from the City of Lanesboro, Chamber of Commerce, Commonweal Theatre, EDA, Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center, Historical Preservation Association, Lanesboro Arts, Lanesboro Public Schools, Local Banks, and the Park Board.

The summit provided a forum for many of Lanesboro’s leaders to share information face to face in one large group. This may have been an historic moment in Lanesboro’s history in terms of the size and level of leadership that was present.

In addition to information sharing and the creation of a unified network, there were also other goals,” Kasten said “including the maximization of resources; magnification of talents by working together as a team; and the development of a national role model legacy plan for Lanesboro’s long-term future. This was a first step.

We took a brief look at Lanesboro’s history and where we are now. We looked at team strengths and needs as well as exciting current projects and plans among members. We began discussions about short and long term goals - local and worldwide, to ensure Lanesboro’s place on the cutting edge of community development and small town small business growth.

It is rare to find so many visionaries in one area that not only reach for large goals but attain them. That was part of the inspiration for this meeting. Lanesboro is blessed with a tremendous talent pool and many gifted young people as well. Local residents, businesses, organizations, and leaders all have a great desire to see Lanesboro’s continued success. Amazing things have already been accomplished. Visionaries established Lanesboro through dedication and hard work. It is an honor to continue that tradition.

One of the focus points of this group is to leave a legacy beyond our lifetimes. As our work continues, it will be critical to have not only great leadership, but support from the community as well.

The leadership team will be meeting again th .....
