Message from the Board Chair:
Happy New Year! It's a great time for Lansdowne and we are looking ahead to a year
of new ventures and experiences. We want to welcome you to our "new look" for our newsletters and would love to hear your feedback.

Last year, the Lansdowne Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) revamped our long-standing Arts Festival into the wildly successful Arts on the Avenue. In 2017, we
want to build off of that momentum by evaluating our programs with the goal of finding opportunities to enhance the impact in our community. 

The LEDC cannot do any of this without our volunteers and community support.
Thank you for all you do and I look forward to working with you in the year ahead.

Ellen Lustgarten, Board Chair

Happy New Year!
Every year, people come up with pretty lofty goals for their New Year's resolutions. Here at the LEDC, we decided to look for smaller, more attainable changes for our resolutions. What is readily available in our little corner of the world, we asked ourselves, that would help us (and our readers) with some of the most common yearly goals? Take a look at our ideas below. We hope it will help you kick start the new year, right here in Lansdowne.
