Carolyn McKnight, superintendent of the East Baton Rouge Parish Recreation and Park Commission, known as BREC, will speak at the Baton Rouge Press Club on July 22. She will discuss progress since passage of the 2004 Imagine Your Parks plan and what comes next. The construction portion of this plan should be mostly completed by 2014.
Press Club meets on Mondays at De La Ronde Hall, which is located at 320 Third St. in downtown Baton Rouge. Lunch, which is served at 11:30 a.m., is $12 for members and $15 for nonmembers. The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and the news media are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
