FORT POLK, LA (KPLC) -

Fort Polk Progress is encouraging civic organizations, school groups, cheerleaders and church groups from across Central Louisiana and East Texas to line the streets of Leesville beginning at 3:30 p.m. Monday, April 15 along La. 467 to 3rd Street, then Texas to the First United Pentecostal Church at 101 Nolan Trace (across  from Leesville City Hall).

This is the route that Department of the Army officials will take to the church for the Community Listening Meeting set for 5 p.m. April 15 at the First United Pentecostal Church.

Fort Polk Progress also encourages that the route be distributed to as many groups as possible.

Cheerleaders from area schools are encouraged to wear their uniforms and make signs in support of Fort Polk, and school groups, civic organizations, church groups and others are also encouraged to populate the streets and to wave signs.

Organizers said spots to congregate are at institutions and businesses on La. 467 such as NSU, the VA clinic and the VA cemetery. 

Also the sidewalks along 3rd Street and Texas are great spots to gather.

For more information, contact Tammy Sharp with Fort Polk Progress by e-mail at tmy.sharp@gmail.com or call 337-378-9329.
