Phew! This website is the most complex (and downright lovely) I’ve ever worked on. I know I’ve been teasing this for quite some time, but I promise, it’s *almost* ready to make its grand debut. is a workhorse for our community. It houses our businesses’ information, details about our community organizations, schools, events, trolley, and so much more.

If you haven’t seen it lately, go look. It really is a wealth of information. But, it’s missing some key details, like . . . proper ‘search engine optimization’ or SEO and ADA accessibility. More importantly, it’s a bit disorganized since it’s gone through multiple generations of maintaining and updating. But, not anymore.

We started from scratch and are building this baby from the ground up, with visitor attraction at the forefront of the process.

When it goes live, our site will be a force to be reconned with. We loaded it with SEO; it will take a bit, but within 30 days of launch, it will be fully ADA accessible, and it has loads of content designed to sell our area to residents, potential residents, and especially visitors alike.

I want to thank those that have helped bring this project to life.

We will have a special section called “Visit Like A Local”, where a handful of Council Grove residents have contributed a quote explaining what they love about their #FlintHillsLife. Thank you to Mayor Debi Schwardtfeger, Jeff Blosser, Amanda McDonald, Kelley Judd, Neter Schamberger, Shelly Wiggam, and Randy Dickson for waxing poetic on their favorite things about Council Grove.

Jon Wadick, Creative Director of Council Grove’s Ad Astra Directive, and my very handsome fiancé has donated countless hours to making this website sing with organization, beauty, and perfect functionality.

Margaret Wyatt, Madeline Lee, and Angie Schwerdtfeger, who have kept the office humming for three weeks while I buried my head in this project.

And, thank you to our incredible membership. You give us so much beauty to work with, and we are extraordinarily proud to be able to market you to the world.

One of the most exciting features of the all-new is the individual listing pages that each of our businesses will have. These pages are first marked by your logos and then loaded with details, back-links, and photography to entice visitors to your little corner of the Flint Hills.

It’s very important to me that you are 100% thrilled with your listing, so I am inviting all of our members to stop into the DESTINATION : Council Grove office at 116 West Main Street in Council Grove to review and modify your listing.

Scan the QR code with your smartphone and set up a time the week of May 22-26th, and together, we’ll take 15 minutes to make your listing perfect.

We can do this by phone as well, so please indicate when signing up if this will be in-person or by phone.
