Scott County Update
Late last year, we had a great Arty Pie Party fundraiser hosted by Rosanne Fitts Klarer and Tim Klarer that brought out over 70 people and brought in over $2,000 in grassroots fundraising work – in addition to just being a lot of fun.
We’ve also gotten involved in a campaign led by Georgetown College students and faculty to adopt a nondiscrimination policy with regards to sexual orientation. Despite a strong and thoughtful recommendation from the faculty, the Board of Trustees has declined to adopt the policy and KFTC members are helping people at the college to develop a strategic analysis of the campaign and plan next steps.
