Dear EFWBA Members,
I'm excited to share that our June membership meeting is going to happen!
Out of an abundance of caution, we are going to hold the meeting on Thursday, June 4 via Zoom (meeting details will be sent to members in an email).
Our speaker will be local businessman, entrepreneur and community leader Carlo Capua. Despite his businesses being hit hard by the stay at home orders, Carlo has made sure to not waste the crisis. He is a dynamic personality with a great story to share that you won't want to miss.
In other news, we received confirmation of a couple important items from the City of Fort Worth:
- The Reby Cary Library on Lancaster will be under construction soon.
- The purchase of Broadcast Hill is still moving forward.
- Work is also continuing related to the Fort Worth ISD bond package.
EFWBA Board Members Charles Hodges has compiled a summary of the
work at the East Fort Worth schools that you can find here.
It is good to know these two important, long-term projects are moving ahead!
I look forward to seeing you (via Zoom) on June 4!
Please let me or any of the EFWBA Board members know how we can help. The board members are listed on the
