Rotary Club of Crowley hears about Project Front Yard

New Rotary Club of Crowley President Pat Miers, far right, was happy to welcome Laurie Suire, president and CEO of OneAcadia, and Katherine McCormick of Project Front Yard (Lafayette) second and third from left, respectively to the club’s Tuesday meeting. The duo spoke about Project Front Yard and the impact it looks to have in Acadia Parish. With them is program organizer Georgie Petitjean.

It was an afternoon of “new” at the Rotary Club of Crowley’s Tuesday meeting.
A new president, Pat Miers, took over the club for the year, and the club heard of a new parishwide initiative that looks to improve its façade and attractiveness to new businesses, new residents and more.
Project Front Yard, which got its start in Lafayette about three years ago, has since expanded into other areas of Acadiana, and as announced recently, is making its way into Acadia Parish.

After a year of projects and a district conference, you would have thought the Rotary Club of Crowley would have opted for an easy banquet Wednesday night.
