Paris, Texas – Due to the recent surge in Covid cases and hospitalizations in the community, the United Way of Lamar County announced today that they will be postponing their Annual Meeting until Friday, October 1st. The event had been scheduled for next Friday.
“Out of an abundance of caution and concern for our stakeholders, we decided that we needed to prioritize public health,” United Way of Lamar County Executive Director Jenny Wilson said. “I want to thank everyone who has reserved tables/tickets for the meeting, and I pray that by October 1st the surge in our community will be on the decline, and we can safely hold this event.
“We can’t wait to come together to recognize our campaign volunteers, our outstanding workplace campaigns, our outgoing board members and announce our volunteer of the year,” Wilson said. “This year is extra special as we honor posthumously two Lifetime Leadership Community Service awards to Philip Cecil and Pat Cochran.”
The UWLC Annual Meeting has been moved to Friday, October 1 at 9am at the Love Civic Center. For more information, contact Jenny Wilson at 903-784-6642.
