We are quickly approaching, the Third Annual Leo F. ScottCommunity Celebration on February 9, 2013.In 2010 Mayor Norm Archibald proclaimed February 12th as LeoF. Scott Day and we plan to make it a great community celebrationannually. Dr. Scott served thiscommunity in many different capacities throughout the years and was very proudof the achievements that Abilene as a whole made in equality, education,religion, employment opportunities and housing. We have planned a program of events to highlight his lifeand contributions to the community and to spotlight his dreams for ourcommunity. The celebration is set tocommence at 1:00 PM at the New Light Baptist Church, 518 N. 6thStreet and culminate at 3:00 PM with light refreshments in the Hurd-ScottEducation Fellowship Hall next door. {{more}} We encourage you to cover and participate in thiscelebration, which will help to establish and support the scholarship endowmentfund at the Community Foundation of Abilene.Contributions to the Abilene Community Foundation – Leo F.
