Join LBA, Seward Civic & Commerce Association and the Lake Street Council as we host very special Legislative Update. This event marks a return to being in person, after being on Zoom last year.

​Hear directly from our State Legislators and County Commissioner on policy and advocacy efforts relevant to the business community, specifically Covid-19 relief and rebuilding efforts.

It will also be back at Gandhi Mahal, hosted by Ruhel Islam. The “Community Room” is now the Community Green Space, on the site of his former restaurant.

He and volunteers have added a garden, a wooden stage, a shade structure, fencing, and a food truck. It’s a beautiful site and will be a powerful space to reflect on this past year. Come with your questions and your appetite! Ruhel will have lunch available from a food truck on site.


Still need to join or renew? It’s easy to do online!
