Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, the citizens of Polk County and the surrounding area will have a better understanding and awareness of the different music and dance styles of the pioneers who settled in and developed this area. Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting with planners and our Society Board of Directors; observations of audience members and their reactions to the performances and project planners; and Board members conversations with audience members.
