Thank you, and now accepting board nominations!

Friends of Lafitte Corridor would like to thank everyone who came to last week’s fundraiser at Dooky Chase’s Restaurant. It was wonderful to see such enthusiasm for this project and we hope this momentum and support will continue in the upcoming months prior to the groundbreaking of the Greenway.

FOLC is also now accepting nominations for our Board of Directors. FOLC’s Board can consist of up to twenty-one directors that can hold office for three-year terms with no consecutive terms. You can see the current board here . There are currently several positions available. We are seeking nominees for board members with the following qualities:
  • Interest in developing the Lafitte Corridor as an urban trail with multiple activity uses;
  • Willingness to promote FOLC at meetings, events, and other venues;
  • Willingness to assist or lead fundraising efforts to support FOLC operations;
  • Ability to attend monthly FOLC meetings (missing three consecutive meetings results in automatic dismissal).

If you or someone you know possess these qualities, please feel free to nominate yourself or another person to be included on the ballot for Board elections. Send all submissions to:

The 2013 FOLC Board of Directors nominees are voted on by the attending membership at our next monthly meeting to be held on Thursday, January 24th at 6:30PM at Sojourner Truth Neighborhood Center, 2200 Lafitte Street.

All members are encouraged to attend!
