Penner to be featured speaker at Founders Day program

Considered the leading authority on rural Kansas communities and tourism, Marci Penner of the Kansas Sampler Foundation has been announced as the featured speaker at the Jackson County Historical and Genealogical Society’s 39th-annual Founders Day program, it has been reported.

Penner, who founded the Kansas Sampler Foundation in 1993 with her father, the late Mil Penner, will share some of the 4,500 unique places to visit in Kansas at this year’s event, scheduled for Thursday, April 5 at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 401 Cheyenne Drive in Holton.

The program, “Exploring The Nooks And Crannies Of Kansas,” will draw upon Penner’s knowledge of Kansas communities, some of which is featured in her most recent book, “The Kansas Guidebook 2 For Explorers.” Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the dinner.
