Outdoor Brochure Dispenser

Are you needing some information? Come check out our new outdoor brochure dispeners in front of our office.  I thought that is could be a way that visitors and community members can still have access to maps, attraction brochurs, and business information on the weekends or after hours when the office is closed.  
They are located at the East end of our building at 331 E. Wichita, Russell.
