LaFayette to Recognize Walmart Partnership at City Lake Facility Dedication


LaFayette, March 25 th –In celebration of community collaboration, the City of LaFayette will host a dedication ceremony for the newly constructed restrooms at Queen City Lake. Scheduled for Thursday, March 28th at 12pm, this event marks a milestone in the ongoing partnership between the city and Walmart LaFayette employees.

Through the Walmart Volunteerism Always pays program, wherein funds are matched for every hour volunteered by Walmart employees, a $8,000 of the $16,000 project was realized by the hands on involvement of Walmart volunteers.
