it impacts the area workforce and economy.

They’ve been working to survey parents and

providers as well as connect with leaders in

business, education and philanthropy.

I am not sure what the answers to this

problem will be, but if we are all aware that

there is a problem and it is affecting our business

community, then I think it is worthwhile

for all of us to take note and get involved if we

have thoughts or ideas that could help find a

solution. A great chance to contribute to that

process is already scheduled.

The Fairmont RCCIP team is synthesizing

their research and the community’s feedback

into a summary, which they will present

in a town hall setting on November 13. After

the presentation, RCCIP will facilitate an interactive

exercise to help community members

brainstorm local solutions to Fairmont’s child

care challenges. Community members are encouraged

to get involved. The November 13

town hall is open to the public and includes

dinner. For more information and to register,

go to:

This issue is important to our community

and important to the way our area businesses

are able to operate and attract employees.

We can all offer ideas and efforts and a great

place to start is at the town hall meeting on November

13th. I hope to see you there!
