Gov. Brownback declares June as 'Flint Hills Heritage Month'

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has signed a proclamation declaring June “Flint Hills Heritage Month.”

The governor is a champion of the Flint Hills, regarding its landscape as a resource to draw tourists and boost the region’s economy and community life.

“The Flint Hills region is one of the state’s premier natural attractions,” said Abby Amick, Wabaunsee County Economic Development director and chair of the Flint Hills Tourism Coalition. “There are so many things visitors can see and experience that bring the Kansas spirit to life. Flint Hills Heritage Month is a great way to focus on the history, natural beauty, and culture of the region.”

Some of the events scheduled to celebrate the region’s heritage in June include the historic Strong City Rodeo, Symphony in the Flint Hills, Fort Riley; Washunga Days, Council Grove; Kansas Cowboy Poetry Contest, Alma; Annual Bluegrass at the Lake, Marion; and Flint Hills Folklife Festival, Cottonwood Falls.
