INMAN – Katie Sawyer, president of the Inman Community Foundation, said the organization wanted to find out “how we can best support the community of Inman.”

The foundation has started polling community groups to find out what has kept people residing in Inman and what are some of the things needed to make Inman better.

The foundation hired leadership expert Lamont Rothrock, of McPherson, to facility the information gathering process. Rothrock started the process with a survey of Inman Chamber of Commerce members during their meeting Friday, Jan. 5, at the Harvest Café.

“We think working together will help both organizations,” Sawyer said.

MOUNDRIDGE – Doyle Johnson, who retired as the administrator at Mercy Hospital, said the support from local Church of God in Christ, Mennonite congregations, as well as the Moundridge community, have helped make the local medical facility a success.

Johnson said when a group of men from Church of God in Christ, Mennonite congregations met to consider starting a hospital, helping the community was important to them.

“Service to the community is a high priority,” Johnson said. “Board members feel they have always gotten a good response from the community when there is a need.

“The community is very supportive of our efforts to keep the hospital going,” he continued. “It’s not only emotional support. They’re using their pocketbooks too.”

Johnson was the administrator at Mercy for 48 years. He started in January of 1969. He retired last August.
