About Norton PRIDE
Norton PRIDE is a group of community members who work to honor our Norton heritage by promoting and supporting a high quality of life, while fostering a sense of community pride through partnerships with other community entities.
Each January, the core committee takes time to review the projects of the past year and identify project needs that should be continued/finished. Norton PRIDE also partners with existing civic organizations to volunteer time and efforts toward ensuring that those projects important to our community survive and new ones can get started.
Norton PRIDE’s various project plans reflect the basic components of PRIDE action in communities across Kansas. These components include: Beautification, Holiday Celebrations, Community Promotion, Parks, Community Festivities/Fundraising and Community Fitness/Health/Wellness.
Norton PRIDE welcomes anyone who is interested to join them in building the “pride” of our Norton community by becoming more involved in the core committee or as a project volunteer.
About the Pride of Norton Endowment Fund
Norton PRIDE is starting a field of interest endowment with NCCF in order to have funds that will help finance projects in the future as grant funding gets harder to obtain.
In 2019, Norton PRIDE held a Bat workshop for kids to learn about bats and help construct houses that the city placed in parks and playgrounds. PRIDE also raised funds for the Pool Playground Equipment and partnered with many other local nonprofit organizations to better the Norton Community. Projects like these can only continue with your support!
