Grafton – April 18

Good morning!  Something great came out of Grafton this week and I wanted to share it with you all.  Alex Reneman is a Grafton community member and local business owner (Mountain Leverage).  He approached me after the first meeting in Grafton and said he had an idea for creating a happiness index for Grafton.  I loved the idea and told him to run with it.  He created the below presentation to introduce it to the community members.  He sent the presentation to the list of contacts we have made over the last couple of meetings and also posted it on FB.  People have been calling and emailing him all week with great feedback!

Please take some time over the next few days to watch the presentation.  We are hoping to incorporate the happiness index in the work being done in both Grafton and Matewan.  Alex is thrilled with the energy surrounding the index and is looking forward to seeing it put to use!

I would love to hear your thoughts after you watch the presentation.  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
