Month four: Tripp comes together for good!
It’s amazing what can happen when people work together.
Four months ago, Bryan and Shawn Bietz of Tripp launched The Tripp Action Group (TAG) after attending RuralX17. Since then, the group has successfully hosted a kickball tournament/fundraiser and a yard-clean up project. A Tripp Area Mom’s Group was also formed to help bring women together. As we follow TAG over the next year, we can’t help but notice that projects are becoming more ambitious as new volunteers step up to take a lead. This is the “ripple effect” we talk about so often! Here are some of the latest highlights from our spotlight community:
As the town’s only grocery store finds itself in danger of closing, the community is coming together to try to save it. A volunteer grocery delivery service has been established and approximately twenty community members are on board to shop and deliver groceries to a growing list of individuals who sign up for the service.
The Tripp Area Mom’s Group held a Crockpot Recipe exchange in October and hosted a Board Painting Party and a kid’s Thanksgiving Craft afternoon in November.
