MIRC Broadband Success: Morris Area Chamber & Stevens Forward reach new citizens online

On our tour of the MIRC communities, we learned how the Morris Area Chamber is using their web site to reach new citizens. They have a regular newsletter that goes out and highlights events and opportunities in the community. It’s been a good way to promote events to the non-native English speakers in the community.

The Stevens Forward programs has 24 stewards that work for community wide goals and with the MIRC program they have been able to bring together all communities in Stevens County. They have started with a directory of resources in the area.
