This weekend, Councilman David Tandy (D-4) will continue a tradition he began years ago to honor a man who, like Tandy, believed the Community needs to come together from time to time just to talk and have a little fun.
The Seventh Annual Willie B. Bright Community BBQ will get underway beginning at 12:00 noon to 4:00pm on Saturday, October 15th at Shelby Park, 601E. Oak Street.
“It is important that we all do our part to meet the needs of our community,” says Tandy. “Willie Bright embraced this idea and used his B-B-Q as a way to get everyone talking to each other which makes solving problems in the community easier.”
The BBQ is free to residents of District 4 and anyone in Metro Louisville.
This year the event will also feature assistance and information for those in the community who may need help with education, health awareness and financial stability.
Mayor Greg Fischer and other city officials will be stopping by this year. Many metro agencies and other organizations will be on hand to offer information and answers on a variety of topics.
Among the groups on hand; Office of Health Equity, Ujima Healthy Living, Small Business Development Corporation, Norton’s Hospital, The Center for Neighborhoods, The Housing Partnership, Economic Development, Louisville Central Community Centers, Bank On Louisville and the Chestnut Street YMCA
The Shelby Park Neighborhood Center will provide games for the children.
“I want to encourage the residents of District 4 and the Shelby Park neighborhood to come out and enjoy a day of fun, fellowship, and education,” says Tandy.
