Lafayette Citizens Band Endowment Fund

Citizens Band Tunes Up for Tomorrow 

The Lafayette Citizens Band is releasing a peppy new tune that could be titled "Planning Our Future." Rather than musical notes, this composition is an endowment with The Community Foundation, created this summer to assure the longevity of the popular group that traces its roots to 1842. "Through our fundraising efforts, we found that some foundations want to make contributions to endowments, so we established one to be able to receive funds," says Brenda Hohman, executive director. The organization, known for its every-Thursday concerts and musicians dressed in bright red shirts, chose The Community Foundation to oversee its endowment because of its community role, says Rod Ray, past president. "The Community Foundation has proven to be an outstanding organization, assisting many local projects and organizations," Ray says. "The board felt that establishing an endowment with The Foundation would further support this community, and provide an avenue for our future support."Hohman says the ongoing source of funds will be helpful. "The proceeds will be used for operating expenses, music, rent, insurance, and other expenses." "We want to secure a solid 鴀nancial base so Lafayette Citizens Band can continue to provide quality concert music to enrich the cultural life of the community," says board president Joe Newlin.
