The 2017 Greater Shreveport Leadership Class, a leadership development program through the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce, has launched Gateway to the Red, a community project dedicated to revitalizing the Shreveport Riverfront.
Gateway to the Red is aimed at taking an area of the Shreveport Riverfront and turning it into a scenic garden along the Clyde Fant jogging path by adding a variety of native species of trees and plants. The main goal of the project is to create an aesthetically pleasing recreational destination for residents and visitors.
The group’s efforts will impact the community in several ways:
- Help to revitalize an area along the Red River so members of the community can enjoy the natural beauty the Red has to offer;
- Promote healthy lifestyles and increase quality of life by providing members of our community with a safe, comfortable area to walk, run or bike along the river;
- Lay the foundation for future beautification projects by raising awareness within the community and encouraging others to give back through similar projects.
To raise the needed funds for the event, the 2017 Leadership Class is hosting a fundraiser at the new Shreveport Aquarium. We hope that you will join us for dinner (which includes a full meal served in small plates and paired with a tasting of three Louisiana beers), entertainment provided by Melrose, a tour of the new aquarium, and a chance to win a $500 gift certificate to Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry. Tickets to the event are $65 each. Sponsorships are also available.
