March 31st Meeting Cancelled & Officers Election Postponed

Dear Ludlow Community –

The Ludlow Community Association (LCA) Executive Committee has decided to cancel the March 31st General Meeting and postpone the officers election. With the recent developments and concerns from the coronavirus and the many cancellations of meetings and events across the city, state and country, we thought it best to cancel the meeting.

We will reschedule in the near future after assessing the community and situation. We have elections and other important business that will need to take place.

Again, if you have the willingness and interest to run for a LCA officer position, please contact 216-630-7279 (Penny).

In the meantime, remain in good spirits. Our community is strong and we will see brighter days ahead.

Thank You,

The LCA Executive Committee
