Successful communities don’t happen by accident — it takes input and a buy-in from everyone.
With that in mind, the steering committee of Vision Check 2030 invites the public to a kick-off mixer from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, at Lollygaggers Sports Pub, 744 U.S. 19, Crystal River (in the same plaza as Harbor Freight Tools).
Cash bar — light appetizers will be served.
This is an opportunity to meet the people on the steering committee, ask questions — and volunteer.
It’s also a fundraising event. Tip jars will be available to collect cash and/or business sponsorship checks.
Funds raised will go to cover the cost of the upcoming Vision Check 2030 event Saturday, Oct. 5, at the College of Central Florida (CF).
At that time, the public will be able to help identify issues that are critical to the county’s future, just the group Citrus 20/20 did back in the 1990s.
Businesses interested in sponsoring Vision Check 2030 or for more information, email Ardath Prendergast at firstname.lastname@example.org.
