North Louisiana Interfaith has asked the Caddo Parish Commission for $500,000 of seed funding to open two pilot locations of the Community Lighthouse Project.
Community Lighthouses are solar-powered resilience hubs where people can get warm (in winter), get cool (in summer), get water, and charge their phones and other devices when storms or ice have caused widespread power outages.
The Lighthouses will also be supported by a volunteer base of people who have learned the neighborhood and know where the needs are so portable batteries can be distributed where needed for medical devices.
There are two locations up and running already in New Orleans and here is a short video about their project:
In accordance with the Bylaws of our church I hereby announce that All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church will hold a Congregational Meeting on Sunday (28 May 2023) at 12:00 PM or immediately following the 11:00 AM worship service in the sanctuary and via Zoom.
The agenda for this meeting will be the election of the 2023-2024 board
All active and inactive members and friends may attend.
Only active members of 30 days or longer may vote.
All active members should endeavor to attend or give their proxies to someone who can — we must have a quorum.
Proxy votes count in the election but do not count toward a quorum.
