We’re ecstatic at the level of support witnessed at last night’s FrOGS community meeting. Thanks so much to all who came. For those who couldn’t make it last night we plan to post a meeting wrap-up as well as next steps for the group soon.
If you filled out an interest card at the meeting you can expect FrOGS to contact you soon.
We received some great questions on the interest cards and on the Green Street Questions board at the meeting. We have our work cut out for us researching answers, which will also be posted here.
The initial results answer some questions we, the students, had about the project. It showed there really is great enthusiasm for this initiative in the community. There are also those ready to help lead FrOGS forward.
Thanks again for everyone’s help and support.
