On January 17, 2018 Fulton Block Builders (FBB) hosted a one-time citywide informational meeting at River Vista. Linda Eagan, FBB Administrative Director and the FBB committee volunteers were very pleased to see over 80 people in attendance, many of which they had never spoken with before. Eagan stated, “There was fabulous new energy and new block leaders were emerging before the night was over. I can’t thank the team of volunteers that worked before, during and after the event, enough. Feedback from those in attendance was excellent.”
Pathfinder Bank, InterFace Solutions, Northern ACE Home Center and River Vista provided financial and printing support to put the Informational Event on, which means none of the money spent will take away from the grants that Fulton Block Builders can distribute in 2018. Partnerships, relationships, pride, beauty and neighborliness are the foundation of the Fulton Block Builder program. This kind of business support is testimony to what can be accomplished, said Eagan.
