Young Community Leaders Speak at DelCo AMP’T Luncheon

Several young leaders from area communities were the featured guest speakers at Thursday’s DelCo AMP’T Luncheon in Manchester.

Wes Schulte, Alicia Walz, Sarah Helle and Liz Rude spent the noon hour talking to local professionals about what’s going on in their communities and how others can get involved.

Wes Schulte, the chair of Manchester Good to Great, says there are several projects underway right now after some brainstorming sessions with the public earlier this year.

Alicia Walz of Kendrick Forest Products spends a lot of time volunteering on projects around Edgewood through the Chamber. After another successful Rodeo Days weekend earlier this summer, they’re focusing on their “Experience Edgewood” marketing campaign.

Meanwhile in Hopkinton, City Clerk Sarah Helle says the community is busy with updates – that includes updating playground equipment at two of the city’s parks – the pool park and Memorial Park – with new equipment set to arrive sometime this fall.

And in Earlville, they just wrapped up with the big Fourth of July celebration. Liz Rude, who serves as VP of the Earlville Community Club, says they’ve also been busy preparing for a special event this weekend.

If you’d like to get involved in these communities, contact the Edgewood Chamber or the Earlville and Hopkinton City Halls.
