Leadership Metcalfe County

About the Program

Metcalfe County, rich in heritage, tradition, and natural beauty, offers residents an array of services, entertainment, and opportunities for growth and fellowship. Growth is apparent on every corner of the Edmonton Square: the new city hall building, the new judicial building, the renovation and expansion of the library, and the almost-new Chamber office and city office building. New tennis courts, upgraded ball fields, and the much-used walking trail at Bowling Park all add to this community. The Edmonton Memorial Park and Pedigo Springs Park has increased recreational opportunities. Barnlot Theater is a wonderful asset to this community and we are indeed fortunate to have it in our midst.

Just think about the last 30 years and all the changes and additions that have been made in this community: SEWS, SEWA, Carhartt, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Subway, IGA, Dollar General Store expansion, Mexican & Chinese restaurants, Primary Care and Edmonton Family Physicians, and new state-of-the-art educational facilities, for example. Can you envision the next 30 years?

Come, learn about the great wealth of natural resources, people, and organizations that make the quality of life in Metcalfe County second to none!
