Thrive Allen County knows how it will direct funds from a $23,730 grant it recently received from the Kansas Health Foundation, Wichita. 

The Farmers Market, in its third year since revival, and pedestrian safety and education in Iola will be primary beneficiaries.

Signs at key crosswalks, such as those now in place on Madison Avenue in front of the Bowlus Fine Arts Center, will receive $7,329. Also, there will be wayfaring signs — they were proposed in the Vision Iola project — to direct Prairie Spirit Trail users to downtown Iola and healthy lifestyles amenities in Riverside Park.
