Sparta Awareness Day success despite weather
"We were prepared to have around 400 people on the Jackson Parish Courthouse lawn to pick up Save Our Sparta kits and to hear the guest speakers," said Trailblazer Executive Director Ellzey Simmons. "But with the weather we had to set up inside but we still had 100 people in attendance even with the severe thunderstorms. We consider it a success."
The original number of 400 anticipated attendees was developed through a contact list. Each volunteer leader contacted 25 people and invited them to attend in a grassroots community outreach plan.
