MIAMI COUNTY INNOVATION SPOTLIGHT
To celebrate Miami County businesses that are being innovative during difficult times, we have decided to Spotlight one special business every month.

The spotlight is presented in collaboration with Miami County Economic Development, Louisburg Chamber of Commerce, Osawatomie Chamber of Commerce, Paola Chamber of Commerce and Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce.

Businesses featured in the Innovative Business Spotlight are nominated by their local chamber of commerce, with nominations rotating among the Miami County communities.

Astronomical Society of Kansas City volunteers at Powell Observatory are eager to start the new season with outside activities and will display images from the observatory's 30-inch mirror telescope on a large, outdoor screen. They are this month's Business Innovation Spotlight! Learn more...
