Can Do! will focus on aspects of Charlotte neighborhoods and communities for its April monthly program. A panel of community speakers will discuss their unique perspectives at the Charlotte Community Library at 7 a.m., Wednesday, April 26.
Panel speakers include Lisa Sherman, City of Charlotte police chief; Travis Lyon, owner of Charlotte Shoe Repair; and Andi Crawford, neighborhood resource coordinator for the City of Lansing.
“This month’s panel discussion will focus on how local interactions impact our communities and ourselves,” said Bill Barnes, Can Do! president. “It will be an exciting panel that approaches the conversation around what it means to be part of a community from three unique and valuable perspectives.”
Each month, Can Do! programs focus on one of the “Seven Elements of Healthy Communities” from the standpoint of community vitality and prosperity. Each time, the four pillars of Can Do! come into play, which are Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Charitable Assets and Youth. As each “element” is discussed, community leaders and interested individuals become more aware of the vision, strategies, resources, and trends in our region.
The Charlotte Community Library is located at 226 S. Bostwick St.
