Moorhead, MN—The rural community of Georgetown in northwest Minnesota exemplifies an unfortunate nationwide trend: the slow evaporation of America's small towns. Recently, there have been positive changes with young, college-age couples and individuals bringing unmatched talent and fresh ideas while infusing remarkable energy into our community. I plan to revive the vacant licensed kitchen in Georgetown's city hall as a community kitchen that would add vitality and sustainability to our town and offer new opportunities for the community to be “alive” in the future.
