Elected Board Officials

Larry Gage, President

Larry has served as a board member of the West Central Association (WCA), participates in Dreams for Kids, and is a member of both the Fulton River Park Advisory Council and of Neighbors of River West.

“I liked the idea of a community group that encourages anyone who wants to get involved in making our neighborhoods the best they can be to be able to do just that,” Larry explains. “It allows people to build off each other’s strengths and ideas and in turn, a great deal can be accomplished.”
