Placemaking in Scioto County: How Newcomers and Returning Residents Impact Our Community

Friday, April 12, 2019

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Hosted by Shawnee State University’s Clark Memorial Library in conjunction with the Kricker Innovation Hub and The Ohio State University’s Center for Folklore Studies

The event seeks to build local creative, social, and business networks all while recognizing community leaders and those who are making a positive difference in Portsmouth as well as the surrounding region. Up to a dozen 'Newcomers' and 'Returners' will be invited to give quick lightning talks aimed at addressing two important questions: Why did they come (or return) to Portsmouth? And what have they done to positively impact the community?

Hors D'oeurves will be provided and a cash bar will be on hand. This is a great opportunity to meet the movers and shakers in the Portsmouth area and network right here in our own community! All are welcome to attend.
