Hi Kaitlyn,


Thank you for this announcement. It made me think to reply with two items:


  1. If you weren’t already aware, I wanted to make sure you knew about a listserv/Google Group we host called Preserving Kansas.  You can find a link to past posts and you can enter your email address to subscribe via  There are a few hundred subscribers in the Group. Folks can post anything preservation related including questions, calls for bids, grant announcements, etc.

  2. Do you mind if I post this announcement to the Preserving Kansas group?  I know this is a county-wide grant, but there are likely to be folks in the group who will either have project ideas for Douglas County or will know someone else you would be interested.  If you’d like to subscribe and then post it yourself, you do that by sending the post to  Let me know either way.
