Calling All FOLCs

FOLC-Meeting-June27th

Hello and thanks again for coming out to the annual hike of the Lafitte Corridor. I’m Sam Spencer, chair of the FOLC board of directors, and I want to issue a special invitation to our yearly membership meeting, to be held this Thursday, June 27.

The FOLC board meets every month and all are welcome, but once a year we create a special agenda geared toward letting the membership know where the project and the organization are in the big picture. On the verge of an expected groundbreaking before 2013 is out, suffice it to say we are in the middle of a critically important time for the corridor.

So come join us this week and get caught up! The time, place, and agenda are below, and as you can see the program includes a time for answering your questions. Thanks and we’ll see you Thursday!

Sam
