Rebecca Ryan’s coming back!

Rebecca Ryan is the principal for Next Generation Consulting, and she last visited Birmingham, Alabama in late 2005 (yeah, I’m referencing a Dre’s Ramblings post) and spoke at the Chamber’s annual meeting and introduced us to this handprint of the city.

Time to dream a little dream for the region

Late last week the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham introduced the Community Catalyst Fund at their annual meeting.

Workers remove old cobblestones along Powell Avenue in preparations for the construction of the Railroad Reservation Park. The park is scheduled to take about a year to complete. The stones will be stored and used in the park. The park is one of three that will be focused on during Thursday afternoon’s annual meeting of the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham being held at B&A Warehouse (directly across the street from the bulldozer activity downtown). There will also be an announcement about the foundation’s latest initiative.
