President's Message

July 16, 2020

Dear EFWBA Members,

Jason Ray

The EFWBA is not deterred by a pandemic! This was evident as we completed our second membership meeting using Zoom on July 2. Not only did we receive great information from our speaker, City of Fort Worth Economic Development Director Robert Sturns, the information sharing between members was very valuable. While we are known for great speakers (and door prizes!), the real strength of EFWBA is our members and our common goal of strengthening East Fort Worth in every way we can.

You can find a recording of the meeting here: https://bit.ly/3fdAxhV (select July 2 EFWBA Meeting Zoom).

Speaking of members, we are pleased to welcome three new members to EFWBA:
Black Coffee coffee shop near Texas Wesleyan University represented by owner Mia Moss; www.blackcoffeefw.com,
Paper Planet boutique stationery shop represented by owner Julie West; www.paperplanetdesigns.com
Franklin & Anthony men's clothier represented by owner Frank Moss, Jr.;

Please help us welcome these new members by considering them the next time you need the services they provide.

The August meeting will feature our very own Tobi Jackson of the Fort Worth ISD School Board. She'll bring us the latest information about FWISD's response to the pandemic and what we can anticipate for the upcoming school year. You won't want to miss this timely program!

Although we will continue using Zoom for our August meeting, we remain a community committed to East Fort Worth and each other. We'll get through this pandemic together. If your Association can be of assistance to you, please let me know.

I look forward to Zooming with you on Thursday, August 6!
