AV equipment brings interactive possibilities

GRAINFIELD – The addition of a large screen television and computer equipment to provide conferencing capabilities in a meeting room in the Grainfield Community Building has given the community an option when face-to-face interactions are not possible.

Grant funds to purchase the equipment were awarded by the Hansen Foundation and Gove County Community Foundation with COVID-19 shutdowns in mind. However, the media room – which is available free of charge and provides everything needed for professional and secure online meetings –has been used in a variety of ways. For example, a local church has used the room to expand its outreach; a volleyball team watched past winning games prior to the substate tournament, and a local medical student preparing for a licensing exam spent a week there in uninterrupted study.
