Local Info

Northeast Kansas is home to many things. Fort Riley, Kansas State University, the Flint Hills and the amazing communities that are the stitches this part of the heartland together.  The overall beauty in this area is the commitment to the “community”and the support given and received.  Even the smallest communities get their fair share. Leonardville, Ks a small town northwest of Manhattan offers an annual Hubbabaloo. To find out what it is all about check out last year’s.  Wamego and Junction City offer festivals at various times of the year. Wamego is home to the largest fireworks show in Kansas with Junction City hot on it’s heals.  Junction City’s “Sundown Salute” is a appreciation of old school rock, carnival for the kids, great foods and a fireworks show to cap it off.

Fort Riley is America’s Warfighting Center and the relationship between the post and the surrounding communities are ones built off of understanding and respect. With solider’s and their families living in and around post in a 45 minute radius everyone is touched somehow by the military. Whether it be organizing care packages or just helping out the family of a deployed spouse, it is about doing what is right .  That we are all dependant on each other and helping your neighbor is the right thing to do.
