At a Mitchell County Strategic Doing meeting, the downtown development committee presented that installing a sound system was one of their main priorities. “The idea for a sound system has been talked about in the community for a while. Even with the rate of new technology, it has taken a long time to find a system that would work with our infrastructure,” said Julia Rabe.
“We were able to kick off the fundraising for this project thanks to the community foundation. We raised over $26,000 total and a big start was this $3,000 grant,” said Rabe. “Our downtown sound system has made a very positive impact in our community.”
