Historic Green Project at the Village!

The Historic Green project is commencing March 8 and will continue until March 23. This is a national group that is committed to restoring historic communities and buildings in an environmentally way. They have a group of 500 volunteers who will be working around the Lower 9th Ward. The headquarters for the project will be at the Village.

We will have a projector for showing Lorrie's presentation (see links to the right to view here!) and other videos. We will also have Tree of Growth brochures. Think of the power of this event. Obviously it is an important fundraising opportunity but also 500 people will hear our message and carry it around the community and around the country.

During this time, MOVIE NIGHT will happen! It will go on in two areas simultaneously, one area for children and one area for adults and youth. This is the first regularly scheduled program to be offered by the Village. What a great opportunity to see all of the work of LEEP and everyone who has donated to this project at work!

Thanks to all of the folks who helped to make MOVIE NIGHT happen! And to John R., who has been working tirelessly to lead the leaders of LEEP. Organizing phone calls and orchestrating volunteers from across the country is a cat herding job at best. John makes it look easy (we all know it isn't!) and does it with style and inspires all of us.
