Morland in Sampler Spotlight Saturday

Kansas Sampler Foundation series stops in Graham County.

Morland, in Graham County, will be the next stop for the Kansas Sampler Foundation's "Bring Your Own Lawn Chair" series.

Morland, population 155, will be spotlighted on Saturday as part of the rural awareness program that is designed to promote awareness of opportunities and issues in rural Kansas.

The public is invited to come to Morland any time after 9 a.m. Breakfast is at the Prairie Junction.
Two main topics will be what it takes to keep a restaurant thriving and the effort to re-open a grocery store.

Prairie Junction will serve ice cream, the post office will be open to sell stamps, Minium Dry Goods store is holding a liquidation sale and the public can visit the bank to see its comic book collection.

Restored buildings and those under renovation will be open for tours.

Previously, Glasco and Stark were featured on the Sampler Foundation's program. Dexter, in Cowley County, and a barn nearby will be featured on Oct. 18.
