We invite you to visit Downs any time of the year and see for yourself why this community has a positive reputation for staying vital and alive in rural America.
Kansas is made of small towns with big dreams. We can help make those dreams come true by working hard and supporting each other. From main street shops to family farms, Kansans have pressed through the challenges to provide for our families and communities. We think that's something to be proud of. That's why we want to hold onto these dreams for future generations. When you shop local, you help do that. It keeps jobs and tax dollars in the community you care about. By buying local, we support ourselves. The City of Downs supports Kansas. Join us, be Kansas Proud. (Original from KWCH 12 website) #smallerisbetter #ksproud
The Osborne County Community Foundation hosted the "Love Your County" campaign during February 2017. Every dollar given to OCCF during February up to $50,000 was matched by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation. With the help of the communities of Alton, Downs, Natoma, Osborne, and Portis, the Osborne County Community Foundation was able to raise $222,500.00 including the matching $50,000. The OCCF would like to sincerely thank everyone who gave throughout the month and made this possible. We would also like to thank the Dane G. Hansen Foundation for this opportunity. The Osborne County Community Foundation looks forward to building a brighter, more vibrant Osborne County!
