Thanks so much to all, who attended the Glynn Dems March Community meeting March 25. It was diverse, engaging, and interactive, with the highlights being: our keynote speaker, Commissioner Allen Booker. Many thanks to him, for leading a lively, thought-provoking Q&A; and compiling amenities kits for the ‘unsheltered homeless community,’ distributed by the charity, Gateway, through its Street Outreach Homeless Assistance Program. Many thanks to those, who donated travel-sized toiletries.
It was a great evening!
PLEASE NOTE: The April community meeting will take place April 29 (the fifth Monday of the month) because of Easter Monday.
We look forward to seeing you there!
