VILLE PLATTE ROTARY CLUB
OCTOBER 14, 2014
The Rotary Club of Ville Platte today (Tuesday) heard from Bill Rodair, Director of the St. Landry Parish Economic Association. Rodair said his group works at bringing the parish together and preparing a plan of economic priorities. One of the projects he shared with Rotarians is the proposed St. Landry Parish Expo Center. The center will be located on donated property off I-49 and Harry Guilbeau road . The center will have the potential of bringing in 100,000 people a year. The center is expected to be constructed by 2019. He suggests Ville Platte and Evangeline Parish community and business leaders do the same thing in working for economic growth here locally. Rodair was the special guest of Rotarian Peter Strawitz.
