On Sunday, August 7, 2016, Welcoming Gainesville hosted an Open House where community members had a chance to mingle and learn more about who we are and what we do. The event featured short speeches by Mayor Lauren Poe and County Commissioner Robert Hutchinson about what it means to be a Welcoming City and a Welcoming County. Paula Roetscher, Executive Director of Welcoming Gainesville, then shared with attendees all upcoming events and programs.
The Open House was a fantastic start to the next year of work and confirmed once more that Welcoming Gainesville is wanted and needed by the people of our town. We thank everyone who attended the Open House, and extend a special Thank You to those who donated to the cause at yesterday’s event! We hope to see you all at our upcoming events!
