THE COMMUNITY CONVERSATION CONTINUES!
On September 4th, 2014 CAB honored the 50th anniversary on the War on Poverty with the launch of a Community Conversation. It was a time for coming together. Community leaders, organizations and individuals met on the rooftop of the Community Foundation building to share hors d'oeuvres, wine, stories and strategies. It was fifty years ago when Lyndon Johnson declared a War on Poverty. Over the next year we’ll continue the community dialog on poverty launched on Sept. 4th. Join the continuing COMMUNITY CONVERSATION. On September 4, 2014, we honored past victories in the War On Poverty and acknowledged present endeavors. As we go forward we are committed to share community information and support and committed to explore possibilities for future community initiatives.
