Director’s Review of 2016

2017 Here We Come!


Lake City Future First is proud of our accomplishments and the leaps forward in 2016. It has been an honor and a privilege to be in the position of Director for just over a year now. We believe we have seen great benefit in having increased our capacity.

Lake City is poised for a great deal of growth and now is the time to get involved. A group from Lake City standing with the mayor.
