HARVEST MISSION CELEBRATION
Information about Austin Regier and his family:
The Regier family hails from East of Newton Kansas where their ancestors have farmed and raised hogs for over one hundred years. The family is comprised of Ken and Amy Regier and their four children, Erin (with husband Matt Graber originally from South Dakota), Austin (with wife Elizabeth Ratzlaff originally from Moundridge, KS), Addie (currently a Junior at Bethel College), and Eli (currently a Senior at Newton High School).
The Regier's have a deep love for bluegrass music stemming primarily from Edwin Regier, Ken's father, who played in a a group called the Country Jamboree. At Regier family reunions, you can expect Ella (Kroeker) Regier to request that instruments be brought, and the making of music is a consistent family tradition. Ken and Amy's family did not manage to escape this dangerous predilection towards bluegrass, and now the whole family plays and sings together. Like most bluegrass bands, Kilometer 81 is named after a leprosy hospital in Paraguay. We love playing music and we love sharing that music with others.
Information about STEPMC:
Steps to End Poverty of McPherson County (STEPMC) is on a mission to walk alongside people until they are out of poverty. We do this by forming a community around those in our program, fostering connections, and creating pathways of opportunity and success. STEPMC creates a framework for people to build relationships across economic and class lines in order to transform lives. We believe that responsibility for both poverty and prosperity rests not only in the hands of individuals, but also with societies, institutions, and communities. Our approach is a progressive model that suggests low-income families must have strong social capital and connections within their communities in order to improve their economic situation. Families and individuals enroll in our training to build financial, emotional, and social resources as well as an economic stability plan that sets goals unique to their own needs and dreams. These families, called Team Leaders, are paired with trained mid- to high-income community volunteers, called Team Partners, who support their efforts to achieve economic stability. Each week, STEPMC meets to provide peer support and to discuss strategies for attaining prosperity.
