Councilwoman Liz W. Hebert, LCG officials and staff, the Lafayette Bar Association Board and Lafayette Bar Foundation Board, Lafayette Bar Association Past Presidents, and members of the general public and media are invited to attend.
With less than 10% of Lafayette’s bus shelters covered, the Adopt A Stop initiative aims to build more covered shelters for bus riders in Lafayette through the generous donations of business partners such as the Lafayette Bar Association and Foundation. Councilwoman Liz Hebert is working with local businesses to cover the cost of construction for sheltered stops through the program. “I’d like to thank the Lafayette Bar Association for their generous donation and the work they do to assist the Lafayette community. They are doing a great service to those who utilize the bus system,” said Hebert.
With community service at the core of their organization, Lafayette Bar Association and Foundation chose to participate in this program as a celebration of their history of serving Lafayette. “The Lafayette Bar Association celebrated its 50th Anniversary in May, 2019. The board and the past presidents committed to funding four scholarships and the completion and dedication of the covered bus stop in front of the Social Security office. We are mindful of the needs of our community, and strive to meet those needs whenever the opportunity arises,” stated Lafayette Bar Foundation President, Maggie Simar.
