Elkins-Randolph Together: A Community Conversation to start in 2024

Randolph County, WV – A new, ongoing gathering entitled “Elkins-Randolph Together: A Community Conversation” will begin in January hosted by the Elkins-Randolph County Chamber, Elkins Main Street, and the Randolph County Development Authority. The inaugural gathering, sponsored by Davis Health System, will be held at Orchard Hall on January 10, 2024 at 8:30am. The focus of this first conversation will be Housing in Randolph County. Invited panel participants will be there representing the Randolph County Housing Authority, Woodlands Development & Lending, Catholic Charities, and North Central WV Community Action.

This new program for the three organizations was created out of various conversations throughout the past year – one-on-one conversations, committee meetings, after-hour type events, social media comments – in which the participants expressed a desire to learn more about what is going on in Elkins-Randolph County on a wide variety of topics. The gatherings will include a facilitator and local experts on the topic to be discussed. Housing, from homeless issues to affordable housing at different economic levels will be the topic on January 10.

The March conversation will focus on Entrepreneurship, much like the after-hour events of the March 2022 and 2023 E3 (Elkins Entrepreneurs Expo). Additional focus ideas include Transportation, Wellness, Education, and The Arts. The community is invited to participate in these free gatherings that will take place every other second Wednesday (odd months only) at 8:30am. The January, May, and September conversations will be held at Orchard Hall. The March, July, and November conversations will be in downtown Elkins, Beverly, and a third location to be determined.

The entire community is invited to attend these gatherings. Registration is available, but not required, to participate in “Elkins-Randolph Together: A Community Conversation.” Coffee and donuts will be provided free of charge.  To register, CLICK HERE.
