Volunteerism and civic involvement are crucial to a community’s success.

It’s becoming more difficult to find people who are willing to serve, though, as personal and/or professional schedules fill up.

A new partnership in Lee County will try to showcase the benefits of service and train future community leaders.

The Keokuk and Fort Madison Area Chambers of Commerce are working with Iowa State University Extension on L.E.E.  The acronym stands for Leadership Education & Excellence.
